Orbitz did *not* charge higher prices for Mac users. Everyone sees the same prices for the same hotels. They sorted the results list different so Mac users saw higher-priced hotels higher in the list… this based on prior data that Mac users ended up choosing those hotels more often.
@Desiato: Allowing the self-selection of higher-quality-by-price as a proxy for coolth is very common. Posh coffee shops where one only sees Mac people using computers, for example.
