The class action Settlement with Korean Air Lines involving an alleged conspiracy by Korean Air Lines Co., Ltd. and Asiana Airlines Inc. to fix prices for air passenger travel between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea received final approval from the Court at a hearing held on December 2, 2013.  The Court previously approved the prior settlement with Asiana Airlines in July, 2011.

Korean Air Lines Co., Ltd. and Asiana Airlines Inc. ("Defendants") were sued by a group of people ("Plaintiffs") who claim that the airlines conspired, in violation of the federal antitrust laws, to fix the prices of air passenger travel between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea from January 1, 2000 through August 1, 2007. The lawsuit claims the conspiracy included meetings, conversations and communications in the U.S. and elsewhere between the two Defendants during which they agreed to establish artificially high prices for air passenger travel.

The Defendants deny the claims in the lawsuit and believe they have valid legal and factual defenses. Asiana and Korean Air have agreed to settle this case to avoid the cost and uncertainty associated with continuing it.

For more detailed information, please review the Notice and other court documents on the link at the left.

 

The deadlines to submit a Claim Form, exclude yourself from the Settlement, or object to the Settlement have now passed.  The deadline for verified claimants to request reissuance of their Settlement payments has also passed.
