When ITA shows you different airlines, for instance KLM there and United back. If I book it as 2 one ways thru orbitz it charges me a much higher one way fare?

Sounds weird. Can you post a screen shot? Please post it with the whole fare breakdown

There are different booking systems, some allow diff. Combinations etc. so some websites might be able to book certain trips while others not.
However in your case it just seems weird as they are in no way an alliance.

I've seen plenty of times booking engines giving different alliances, its just very expensive at they price them as two one ways.

I'm not a frequent flyer, but I've used ITA a few times with no trouble at all. Got the prices that I saw there on the airline's website.
Buy discounted gift cards from me.

I was looking for a flight one way flight NYC - TLV as per a DDF members's request. He/she wanted to leave on August 26. If you put those search parameters into ITA Matrix, you got a really nice price on Turkish Airlines. In reality nothing close to those prices exist. Only seats in Business Class are available. I am posting screen shots of ITA Matrix results and actual availability on Amadeus. ITA has to somehow fix this.

Call a TA.

Matrix does at times show phantom availability.

Looks like ITA is not perfect. I randomly checked Kayak from my phone and that's when I saw that ITA didn't list all options.
