Orbitz Claims Mysterious Conglomerate Is Ganging Up On Them

from the um,-the-only-conglomerate-I-see-is...-Orbitz dept

It seems that Orbitz has become quite the paranoid dot com. They’re now claiming that a scary “conglomerate” of companies are ganging up on them to help Sabre’s Travelocity. This is funny because Orbitz is the company that was created by a “conglomerate” of five of the leading airlines. The details of how this came about are somewhat interesting as well. It seems that some folks bought tickets through Orbitz, and when they showed up at the airport, the airline (Vanguard) told them the tickets were no good because Orbitz screwed up. Orbitz then said that the problem had nothing to do with them, but that Vanguard was obviously a part of this mysterious conspiracy to kill Orbitz. All I can think of is how much it would suck to show up at the airport and not be able to fly because your stuck in the middle of some fight between a dot com and an airline.
