Late Friday, May 25, Texas State District Court Judge Don Cosby granted Sabre a 60-day extension in the Texas antitrust lawsuit filed by American Airlines (AA) last year. The trial is now set to begin Oct. 3, 2012.
AA’s claims are without merit. We continue to believe that our shared stakeholders would be better served by negotiations, rather than litigation, between the companies. To that end, we hope that AA will end this wasteful process. However, since AA continues its litigious course, we will continue to mount a vigorous defense.
Sabre travel agency, corporate and consumer customers will have continued access to AA content through the Sabre global distribution system throughout the duration of the airline’s Texas state lawsuit against Sabre.
