Travelport Wins Injunction Against American Airlines

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 2 June 2011

The Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois has entered an injunction against American Airlines (AA) overturning its prior ruling.

The Court conceded that it erred in its 21 December 2010 ruling. Issuing its Order on Wednesday, the Court agreed with Travelport that an injunction should have been granted against AA in December which would have prevented AA from terminating its contracts with Orbitz.

The Courts Order requires AA to reinstate Orbitzs ability to display and ticket AA flights. As a result, Orbitz is able to sell AAs fares and content immediately.

As part of its ruling, the Court noted that, Travelport also demonstrated that it had a likelihood of success on the merits of its claims against AA.

According to Travelports Chief Commercial Officer, Kurt Ekert, Travelport is delighted with the Courts ruling requiring AAs fares to be reinstated on Orbitz and enabling consumers to book AA tickets through Orbitz. We view this as a significant ruling.
