    What they really meant was: “this *trip* starts and ends at different airports”, which is unusual. Most airlines expect journeys to be perfectly round-trip. Just bad wording on Orbitz’ part.

    Aaaaah. Thank you.

    I wonder what would happen if I tried to book a flight from and to the same airport, though. Let’s see, how about a round-trip from SFO to SFO?

    You gave us the same city/airport for your departure and arrival. Please check the information and try again. (Message 1020)

    I kind of like their error message strategy: a human-readable message, followed by a code clearly intended for their programmers. Maybe Subversion should do the same thing?

    The Mount Everest sight seeing flight I went on a few years ago was labeled on the boarding pass as “from KTM to KTM,” I think.
