Orbitz down
Any info?

 1:49 pm on Jun 5, 2005 (gmt 0)

Seems Orbitz.com has a huge problem
Since a few days they are down.

Is it again a DB failure?
Do you have any further info

I booked a flight yesterday on it, and it all seems to be working. Maybe it's just in your specific country?

Thanks, I am in the US
But since you told me that you booked a flight yesterday
I tried with Firefox and got it right away.

Very strange I have it bookmarked in IE and always used it for my flights through the same IE link
Plus I did not tweak, update or whatever my IE since al least one year! With IE it hangs forever and does not resolute.

Thats strange, have you tried clearing your cache and temporary internet files?

Well I guess this is another IE surprise :)

I tried everything but IE does no longer "like" Orbitz!

Not a real pain since I reapplied through Firefox

BTW it also works in Netscape 6.2, which I keep to view my sites on NN.

Thanks, some day I will have to upgrade IE but am very reluctant for it might trigger a lot of problems with my local Apache

Down here, Firefox. A couple of hours back it was throwing a 502, now I get:

We're sorry. Our site is unavailable.

We are aware of the problem and are working to correct it.

Please try again later.
