Court throws out Sabre claims
Thursday, September 22, 2011
US-based travel technology firm Sabre Holdings has won dismissal of two of the antitrust claims made against it by US Airways.

A judge threw out US Airways' claims that Sabre conspired and monopolised what it called the "Sabre travel agent market."

US Airways' antitrust suit followed a complaint filed by AMR Corp's American Airlines as airlines seek more control over the distribution of their products.

In the remaining claims, US Airways says Sabre restrained competition through a series of agreements with airlines and travel agents and that it conspired with other operators of global distribution systems, which provide travel agents with fare and schedule information, to keep out competitors.
