The complaint asserts that these and other airlines "began imposing air
fare increases, including fuel surcharge increases, on international air
passengers at approximately the same time and in the same amount."
The lawsuit also states, "The close timing and
amount of Defendants' increases were not coincidences, but the result of
a collusive agreement
to fix, raise, maintain, and stabilize the prices of base passenger
fares and fuel surcharges on
The suit makes reference to a U.S. Justice Department investigations into price-fixing against some of the defendant airlines.
