Airline Customers Files Federal Class-Action Lawsuit Against Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and United Airlines

A group of airline customers has filed a federal class-action lawsuit in Dallas accusing four major U.S. airlines of violating antitrust laws by conspiring to artificially inflate airfares in order to reap huge profits. According to the lawsuit, Southwest Airlines and American Airlines, Atlanta's Delta Airlines and United Airlines conspired to restrict capacity by limiting routes and the number of available seats in order to charge artificially high prices. The lawsuit describes a series of economic conditions that should have resulted in more available airline seats and lower ticket prices, including increasing public demand for airline seats and the fact that airlines paid at least $1.50 per gallon less for jet fuel in 2014 compared to 2013. Instead, the supply of seats has remained virtually flat and airline fares skyrocketed at an inflation-adjusted rate of 13% from 2009 to 2014.
