Korean Air/Asiana Airlines
Korean Air Lines and Asiana Airlines were sued over allegations that the airlines conspired to fix the prices of air passenger travel between the United States and the Republic of Korea between Jan. 1, 2000, and Aug. 1, 2007.
In a separate legal action brought by the US Department of Justice, Korean Air and Asiana pleaded guilty to criminal antitrust violations and agreed to pay a fine, according to a website set up to handle claims.
The settlement pool includes $50 million in cash and $36 million in coupons. The website classactionrebates.com estimates that the average settlement will be $500 in cash, plus $360 in vouchers. The deadline to submit a claim is Dec. 31.
