Summary of the Proceedings
On July 31, 2009 a Statement of Claim was issued against the following Defendants:
- Air Canada
- All Nippon Airways
- Asiana Airlines, Inc.
- Cathay Pacific Airways
- Delta Air Lines, Inc.
- Singapore Airelines
- United Airlines
on behalf of a proposed class of all persons in Canada who during the class period paid air passenger fares which included surcharges for fuel, insurance, and/or security surcharges to or from Canada and other trans-pacific destinations operated by the defendants.
The plaintiffs allege that the defendants engaged in a conspiracy to enhance unreasonably the price of passenger services by the adoption and adjustment of surcharges on top of the cost of base fares for flights to and from Canada and various trans-pacific destinations operated by the defendants.
The plaintiffs seek general damages for conspiracy, intentional interference with economic relations, and conduct which is contrary to Part VI of the Competition Act; an accounting, restitution, disgorgement and the creation of a constructive trust for unjust enrichment, waiver of tort and the taking of inequitable profit by unlawful conduct; and punitive and exemplary damages.
Harrison Pensa LLP is working in concert with Sutts, Strosberg LLP in the prosecution of this matter.
