Korean Air Lines Co., Ltd. and Asiana Airlines Inc. have reached a $65 million class action lawsuit settlement resolving allegations they conspired to fix prices for air passenger travel between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea. If you bought a qualifying ticket between January 1, 2000 and August 1, 2007, you may be entitled to cash and coupons for future air passenger travel as part of the class action settlement.

The Korean Air settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit that claims the alleged conspiracy included meetings, conversations and communications in the U.S. and elsewhere between the two Defendants during which they agreed to establish artificially high prices for air passenger travel.

In cases separate from this class action lawsuit, brought by the United States Department of Justice, the Defendants pled guilty to criminal antitrust violations and agreed to pay a fine. Despite pleading guilty in the DOJ cases, Korean Air Lines and Asiana Airlines deny the allegations raised in the class action lawsuit but have agreed to a settlement to resolve the litigation.

Claim Forms and more information on your rights in the Korean Air Passenger Class Action Settlement can be found at www.KoreanAirPassengerCases.com.

The case is In Re: Korean Air Lines Co., Ltd., Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 07-01891, U.S. District Court, Central District of California, Western Division.

Who’s Eligible

Class Members of the Korean Air settlement include anyone who purchased at least one ticket for air passenger travel on Asiana Airlines or Korean Air Lines. The purchase must have been:

  • Made in the United States;
  • For a flight originating in the U.S. and ending in Korean or a flight originating in Korea and ending in the U.S.; and
  • Made between January 1, 2000 and August 1, 2007.

Both businesses and individuals may be Class Members.

Potential Award

Class Members that submit a valid Claim Form will receive cash and coupons from the class action settlement, which will be distributed pro rata, based on the total number of qualifying purchases and valid Claim Forms submitted.

    My round trip ticket was purchased Nov 1999 but I had to pay a $75.00 penalty Feb 26, 2000, before being allowed to board, for changing the
    date. Am I qualified to file a claim?
    Thank you.
    Mr. Leslie Shafer

      Hi Julie, Thanks for the update.

  • carol April 8, 2014

    hey JULIE why don’t you shut up? you post on all the claims and act like you know what’s going on. nobody asked you hon.

  • Debra April 11, 2014

    Why is that Carol’s comments are all the same? It’s like she copying and pasting the same thing on every page! Seems weird to me….is Carol for real? I can’t help but think about Carol from the Walking Dead whenever I see a comment from her…it makes me want to laugh even harder!!!

  • Website watchers April 13, 2014

    Ton and Carol “showed up” at the same time a couple months ago. My bet is they or at least one of them is working for the website administrator and they are just a dumb faggot trying to keep tabs on us. Both of them can take their dumb fucking HIV infested faggot asses and go straight to hell for all I care.

    • ton April 14, 2014

      website watcher, I’m only watching you. You will see what happens over the next year to you. Boy, you are a real nutcase hater. Take a few more pills and get over your latent tendencies.
      Debra good comment. I was sad the season ended for the walking dead. I would tape Sunday night and watch on Wed. Doesn’t it seem website watcher would have fit in with Daryl’s last group.
