Air Transit World reports that the online booking engine—not American—was the one that decided to remove the carrier's domestic business and first class and international fares purchased in the United States from Expedia.com. At the time American issued its statement, a spokesperson told Travel Agent that the reason was due to economics, but ATW quotes Expedia as stating, "Expedia made this decision independent of any negotiation issues with AA."
