DROPR - Totally false. Also cancelable online. Simplist way is to click cancel button from within the email (unless email comes in before ticket numbers came through).
And for the PL fans, why can't PL offer a discount for a child under 12?
Bottom line, each has their own +/-. There's no right or wrong here

Respond to that commenter and see what they say.
Wouldn't be surprised if there was no cancel button.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

All PL fans, book a family of 5 children (under 12) with the current sale LAX - TLV and pay $295 more on PL than on the others...

Is there any advantage to booking directly through the airline website and not an OTA?
Do you get the same 24 hour cancellation on aa.com ?

Depends on the airline. Oftentimes better cancellation policy with OTA..

2 that I know off the bat:
AA does not allow free cancellations for travel under 2 days away, while booking on Priceline would allow that.
Jetblue is similar, but their policy is not allowed within 7 days, again Priceline would allow that.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Looks like points can now be used for flights online too (only if the entire cost of the flight can be covered by the points.)

Why are you earning Expedia+ points? The value shown is $0.00714 (less then a penny) value per point towards airfare.

If the prices are the same why not?

Nice!
BTW, if you book "bundles" (flight+hotel) you can get a lot of points, it can be worth the extra $10 hotel.
