Expedia.com is not pricing out?

I tried to access "Fare List" of Expedia.com from the last night, however I still can't access to it. Does anyone have this problem?

The conclusion in another thread (see Return of an Extremely Useful MR Tool) was that Expedia shut it down again.

This is very weird. How come it works fine only for you when it doesn't work for others?

No idea - I have it as a bookmark and can access it without difficulty.

Maybe I am special

And when you enter city pairs, do you get results?

I'm not sure whom are you referring to. If you are referring to me, that's obviously not what I'm looking for. What is the difference between your link and www.expedia.com? Anyhow Expedia.com is really pissing us off. FTers should boycott Expedia.com.

I just emailed Expedia asking about the service and after a series of emails where they completely ignored my question and answered questions never asked (like how to set up fare alerts), they replied as such:

Unfortunately, we no longer offer the Airline Fare List.

Your product suggestion has been forwarded to the Expedia.com product planning
team for consideration as a future enhancement.

Customer feedback and suggestions are an important part of the
product-improvement process, so we appreciate your taking the time to write to
us.


I would suggest that everyone who used the service write to them at [email protected] and let them know how much they enjoyed the feature. Maybe then will they reinstate it.

I have to wonder if maybe one of the airline representatives cruising FT saw that Expedia was providing a doorway to create "extended routings" and kindly asked Expedia to close that doorway. Just a thought.

Why does it always seem like the websites (Expedia, Travelocity etc.) are getting worse everytime they are 'upgraded' and enhanced? Easysabre and United connection were incredibly powerful. Nowadays Travelocity has been downgraded so much I really can't use it anymore for simple flight searches.

Expedia.com hadn't showed full "Applicable Routings" for most fare basis. Even though "Routings" weren't completly shown, it was still helpful to make a trip. The only thing I can say is WE HAVE TOO MANY LURKERS NOWADAYS.
