The company noted highlights of the new Orbitz iPad app:
-Unrivaled speed and ease of use: Search and book flights, hotels, and rental cars in a flash with a dual list/map view of hotels, the ability to compare details of multiple flights, rental cars, or hotels from a single screen, and sorting & filtering capabilities.
