Airlines consider New York options

21st Dec 2007

The Air Transport Association of America has issued a statement in response to the New York lower court’s decision regarding ATA’s challenge to the legality of the state’s airline passenger rights legislation.It reads:

  “ATA believes that the court has misinterpreted the law. We are considering our options, including filing an appeal. ATA’s sole purpose in filing this lawsuit was to preserve the principle that commercial aviation is best regulated by one source - the federal government - and not 50 individual states.”

        ATA will have no further comment.
