"Consistent with our long-held position, the U.S. District Court of the
Northern District of Texas has dismissed all existing antitrust claims against
Orbitz Worldwide that were brought by American Airlines. In addition, the
Court's docket indicates that Orbitz Worldwide has been terminated as a
defendant. While the Court's decision does indicate that American can file a
new claim, the Court's Order notes that the Court has not concluded that the
claim is plausible or sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss."
