Did you know that if you traveled domestically on American, Delta, United, Southwest, Continental, or US Airways between July 1, 2011 and June 14, 2018 you could be eligible for compensation?  23 separate anti-trust class action suits were consolidated in 2016, alleging that the “Big Six,” which collectively make up more than 80% of the airline industry, colluded to cap the number of seats they would add to planes in order to artificially raise ticket prices even though fuel costs were lowering and ticket demand was unchanged.1Southwest and American agreed to settlements last year – without admitting any wrongdoing – in the amounts of $15 million and $45 million, respectively.  The lawsuits against United and Delta are ongoing.If you traveled during the time frame listed above aboard one of the “Big Six,” you can register here to receive updates about the lawsuit.  You may also go to the class action homepage for more information.Sign up for our newsletter to receive updates and alerts like this one delivered straight to your inbox.
