On June 22, 2018, GBDH won preliminary approval of a proposed class action settlement in Bazerman v. American Airlines. Bazerman alleges that American Airlines has charged passengers to check bags that should have been free under American’s contract with customers. Under the settlement, eligible American Airlines passengers who submit a valid, timely claim will receive either a 75% refund or a full refund plus interest for incorrectly charged bag fees. Awards will range from $18.75 to $200 plus interest per bag. Class members now must submit a claim by November 26, 2018 to receive a refund. The final approval hearing is rescheduled for February 21, 2019 in the District of Massachusetts. For more details about the settlement, please read the Notice of Proposed Settlement.
Benjamin Edelman is also counsel for Plaintiff.
