Why too avoid Orbitz!

why you shoudl avoid Orbitz? no one to contact, only FAQ section , and they do NOT warn you about charges like $100 for a carry on, I see warnings clearly on other travel sites.

Is this a flight with Spirit? If so, they absolutely warn you.

It's not Orbitz job to provide you with specific airline policies. Policies for things like that change regularly. Other TAs may do it but it's a courtesy and you could still end up being burned.

The charge for a carry on would have nothing to do with Orbitz. It would be a charge from the airline.

"It's not Orbitz job to provide you with specific airline policies."

I agree although Orbitz actually does do that, which makes the OP's complaint even more baseless.

It's not even in the terms and conditions, it's right there on the booking page :)
