American Airlines Seeks to Toss COVID-19 Class-Action Suit
American Airlines seeks to toss COVID-19 class-action suit seeking ticket refunds https://t.co/j1fXVVIeUJ – American says anyone who canceled flight – rather than waiting for airline to do so – is not eligible for cash refund— AviationLawNews (@AviationLawNews) August 18, 2020
Health Editor’s Note: American Airlines is facing a class action suit seeking air-fare refunds for trips that were cancelled due to COVID-19 either because where they were going was closed, they were discouraged to continue their trip, or perhaps they thought it would be better for their health to not be crammed into a plane, breathing and rebreathing the same air as everyone else on the plane. If a potential passenger could not make the flight due to the constraints of COVID-19, and did not board a plane, then they should be given their money back.
Let’s face it…airlines charge huge fees, then add on other fees for what used to be complimentary drinks and snacks, baggage fees, etc. and have been doing so since the price of gas went up, eons ago. Fuel prices have gone back down, and currently we are seeing very low prices at the gas pumps, but the airlines has not decreased the price of flying. Gas prices for airplanes must also be down. Right? Airlines got used to making the passengers/consumers pay so they would not loose money and now consumers think they should still be paying the high prices for an airline ticket, just because the airlines continue to make sure they profit. Bring down ticket prices, to where they should be…Carol
