Expedia Lands Deal With American Airlines

Expedia has mended its relationship with American Airlines, allowing the online travel agency to resume selling the company’s flights to customers effective immediately. Expedia dropped the airline’s listings in January after a dispute over terms. American continues to negotiate with other travel companies, such as Sabre Holdings and Orbitz. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but Expedia’s stock took off today, trading up 29 cents, or about 1.3 percent, to close at $22.72 a share.
