Court Sides With AA Over Sabre

In a lawsuit filed in Texas state court against Sabre, American Airlines alleged that the recent actions taken by Sabre against the airline, including the biasing of its services in all Sabre flight displays, violates agreements between American and Sabre and harms American, the travel agent community and the traveling public.

American also filed a request for a temporary restraining order prohibiting Sabre from continuing to bias its display of American flights.

“We are gratified that, after a contested hearing, the Court has granted American's request for interim relief, to be in effect until the Court considers American's request for longer term relief,” AA said in a statement.

The Court's order prohibits Sabre from continuing its recently announced practice of intentionally making it difficult for American's agents and customers from finding and purchasing American services in the Sabre global distribution system, AA said.

“American intends to vigorously pursue its litigation against Sabre, including seeking damages for other violations of our agreements,” AA said.
