Orbitz Expects To Turn A Profit

from the strong-businesses-really-can-survive dept

While it’s not standard to report on earnings here on Techdirt, I thought this was interesting. Orbitz, the new online travel site, is predicting profitability by the middle of next year. This goes to show that if you build a good site, based on a good business, you can survive. It has amazed me how fast Orbitz has caught on among the average consumer. I constantly hear from people I wouldn’t expect that they are using Orbitz exclusively because of the low fares they can find there but nowhere else.
