Atlanta lawyer claims collusion by airlines

An Atlanta lawyer is the latest to file suit against several airlines, accusing them of colluding to keep ticket prices sky high.

The class-action suit filed by attorney David Bain lists Delta, American, Southwest, and United Airlines as defendants. He filed it on behalf of a Massachusetts traveler.

The suit, filed in the Northern District of Georgia, says the airlines conspired to fix, raise and maintain ticket prices.

A Delta spokesman, once again, denied the claims in a statement released Tuesday.

The Department of Justice is looking into the accusations.

Lawyers in other states have filed similar suits, with the goal of a class-action case that would include millions of fliers. They could consolidate the suits.
