Orbitz is a popular place to book hotels, flights, cars, cruises, vacation packages, and more. Orbitz was purchased by Expedia in February 2015.

Orbitz was originally established in 2001 through a partnership of major airlines, and subsequently owned by various entities, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Northwest Airlines, and United Airlines, subsequently joined by American Airlines, invested a combined $145 million to start the Orbitz in November 1999.

It was originally envisioned as a way to compete against Expedia and Travelocity, so it is ironic that is was eventually purchased by Expedia. Orbitz was controversial because it was feared that with backing from the major airlines, it could give itself better pricing and availability than other travel booking sites. Complaints were brought against it to the Department of Justic.

Per wikipedia, Two years after inception,  the Department of Justice ruled that Orbitz was not a cartel and did not pose a threat to competition. Orbitz's rapid growth had not impeded its online competitors' businesses which had continued to grow apace, and no evidence was found of price fixing. Additionally, changes in the marketplace had eroded both the advantages of the Most Favored Nation clause and the webfares that Orbitz had due to its low supplier cost. The efforts by its competitors to generate government scrutiny and the corresponding media attention only heightened consumer interest in Orbitz and the new ways it would allow travelers to shop. Nielsen's Net Ratings division reported in July 2001 that the Orbitz launch in June 2001 was the biggest e-commerce launch in over two years, with more than 2 million visitors during the month, exceeding the launch of sites such as Target.com and Walmart.com. Orbitz Worldwide travel sites now generate that many visitors each day
