BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Trial in DOJ fight with American Airlines set for September

American Airlines

(Reuters) – The judge hearing the U.S. Justice Department's antitrust lawsuit against American Airlines Group Inc. and JetBlue Airways Corp. said on Monday that the trial in the matter would begin on Sept. 26, 2022.

In its lawsuit, the government asked Judge Leo Sorokin to order the airlines to end their "Northeast Alliance" partnership, saying it would lead to higher fares in busy Northeastern airports.

The agreement allows American and JetBlue to sell each other's flights in their New York-area and Boston networks and link frequent flyer programs, giving them more muscle to compete with United Airlines and Delta Air Lines in the Northeast.

American and JetBlue have denied wrongdoing and asked Sorokin to dismiss the lawsuit.

The Justice Department's lawsuit signaled the Biden administration's interest in trying to inject more competition into the airline industry, where American and three other airlines control 80% of the domestic market.
