A consolidated class action lawsuit argues that major domestic airlines American, Delta, Southwest, United, Continental, and US Airways conspired with each other to increase the prices of domestic airline tickets by limiting the capacity on domestic flights.
Southwest has already agreed to pay $15 million and American has settled for $45 million to settle this nationwide litigation. Southwest and American have also agreed, as part of the Settlements, to provide certain cooperation to Plaintiffs in this litigation.
You are part of this settlement if you purchased flights within the United States and its territories and the District of Columbia from American, Delta, Southwest, United, Continental, or US Airways at any time between July 1, 2011 and December 20, 2017 for the Southwest Settlement and between July 1, 2011 and June 14, 2018 for the American Settlement.
