Orbitz issues statement following court’s dismissal of lawsuit by American Airlines

The following Orbitz Worldwide statement is in response to the court ruling granting Orbitz Worldwide’s motion to dismiss American Airlines’ federal antitrust claims.

“Consistent with our long-held position, the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Texas has dismissed all existing antitrust claims against Orbitz Worldwide that were brought by American Airlines.  In addition, the Court’s docket indicates that Orbitz Worldwide has been terminated as a defendant.  While the Court’s decision does indicate that American can file a new claim, the Court’s Order notes that the Court has not concluded that the claim is plausible or sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss.”
