Orbitz Warning

August 29, 2007

Be careful when using the popular travel site ‘Orbitz’ to book plane tickets.  Some suggestions it gives are downright absurd.  I wanted to see if a good fare was available from Philadelphia, PA to New Haven, CT ( offered on Amtrak for $45 to $80 depending on day/ time) and this is what came up:

Philadelphia – New York
New York – Buffalo
Buffalo – Newark
Newark – Westchester County
Westchester County – New Haven

 Yes, five segments for a trip that is not even 200 miles long.  Are they out of their mind ?????
