US Airways Antitrust Suit Against Sabre Starts April 22 With Profanity In Discovery Redacted

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 19 –    Sabre Travel International has been in the news during the war in Ukraine, as it removed Aeroflot from its global air ticketing system.

    But this ubiquity also got Sabre sued for antitrust violations in 2011, and US Airways' case against it is coming to trial.               

      On April 19, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield held a final pre-trial conference, after remand from the Second Circuit. Inner City Press covered it, it will the trial.   

 The issues were nitty gritty. How many lawyers are coming to Courtroom 110 in 40 Foley Square with laptops? How will be press be able to cover the trial? (Why not a call-in line, such as the US v. Parnas trial had?)  Even, how much of particular swear words in email exhibits to redact. (Two letters at least, it seems).

   US Airways, which merged with American Airlines in 2013, alleges that Sabre conspired with Amadeus and Travelport to monopolize distribution services to travel agencies in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

The jury questionnaires have been picked up. Voir dire begins on April 22. 

The case is US Airways, Inc., for American Airlines, Inc. as Successor and Real Party in Interest v. Sabre Holdings Corporation et al., 11-cv-2725 (Schofield)
