If You Bought an Airline Ticket Between the U.S. and Asia, Australia, New Zealand, or the Pacific Islands,
You Could Receive Money from Class Action Settlements.
Consumers can get money if they bought a ticket for air travel from one of 26 airlines that included at least one flight segment originating in the U.S. to Asia or Oceania at any time between January 1, 2000 and December 1, 2016.
Settlements have been reached with four airlines (Air New Zealand Limited, China Airlines, Ltd., EVA Airways Corporation, and Philippine Airlines, Inc.) in class action lawsuits involving the price of transpacific airline tickets. Separate settlements were previously reached with eight airlines (Air France, Cathay Pacific Airways, Japan Airlines, Malaysian Air, Qantas Airways, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, and Vietnam Airlines). The lawsuit is continuing against the remaining airline defendant, All Nippon Airways.
