Travelport Wins Big With Injunction Against AA

June 1, 2011 By: George Dooley

In a big win for Travelport, the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois today entered an injunction against American Airlines (AA) overturning its prior ruling. The Court conceded that it erred in its December 21, 2010 ruling and in a new order the Court agreed with Travelport that an injunction should have been granted against AA in December that would have prevented AA from terminating its contracts with Orbitz.

The Court's new order requires AA to reinstate Orbitz's ability to display and ticket AA flights. As a result, Orbitz is able to sell AA's fares and content immediately. As part of its ruling, the Court noted "Travelport also demonstrated that it had a likelihood of success on the merits" of its claims against AA.

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

Travelport said that it strongly supports consumers' right to maximum transparency and the ability to shop, compare, and book travel services wherever they choose. Travelport also said it will continue to work constructively with AA to ensure that consumers, corporations and travel agents continue to benefit from the most transparent travel booking processes possible.
