I ended up just buying from AA.com. After orbitz came back for 30 seconds, I discovered the other routing Sucked. Badly. And was actually selling me CX flights that wouldn't do what I needed.
But I'm booked on BOS->LAX on AA. Have 9 hours to see people in LA. Then LAX->TPE on an EVA codeshare. (Sadly not in evergreen deluxe). On the way back, it's TPE->SFO->BOS. Also on an EVA flight to SFO.
