KoreanAirPassengerCases.com – Korean Air Lines Price Fixing Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
The alleged reason for this case is the Korean Air Lines fixed prices for traveling from the United States to Korea. The airlines was sued for violation of the federal antitrust laws. Apparently there were conversations and meetings to fix the prices of the air travel so that they were extremely high. So if you bought a ticket on the carrier at anytime from January 1, 2000 to August 1, 2007, then you may be eligible to get cash and coupons. You will be able to use the cash and coupons for travel with the airlines in the future. The official website where you can get a ton of information on this case can be found at the koreanairpassengercases.com site.
You will have some deadlines that you need to adhere by if you are considered a part of this case. The deadlien to object to the settlement is October 25, 2013. This means that you can submit your request to object to the Korean Air Lines Price Fixing Class Action Lawsuit Settlement if you find something that you do not like about the case. Another deadline that you must adhere by is the one to ask for exclusion. This means that you want to be excluded from the case and do not want the money or the coupons. However if you do take this action, you will retain all your legal rights. This means that you will be able to sue the airlines on your own if you want to do that. Another important deadline is the deadline for you to send in your claim form. This deadline is December 31, 2013. So this means that if you want the money and the coupons, then you must fill out the claim form. You will be able to find a copy of the claim form at the koreanairpassengercases.com site.

If you are not sure about anything, please contact the class counsel. You will be able to find the information on how to contact them at the official website. They will be able to give you the proper advice on what you will need to do in order to get what you want. So for example if you are not sure if you should exclude yourself and sue on your own or if you should take part, then that is a question that would be best answered either by the class counsel or the settlement administrator. You are advised to contact the settlement administrator first.
Also if you have questions that you want answered and you never received the notice in the mail or in your email, then you should download and read the notice which you can obtain at the site. That is the first place that you should start. However, if the legalese is too much for you, then I would suggest that you read the information on the FAQ page on the site. One of the questions that many people want to know is about eligibility to take part. In this case, you are eligible to take part if you bought the ticket or tickets in the United States and you were traveling from the United States to Korea. It can also be a flight from Korea to the United States. The time period that this should have happened is at any time from January 1, 2000 to August 1, 2007 which I mentioned earlier. So your purchases could be made from businesses like travel agents and also from individuals. Apparently this also includes travel on Asiana Airlines. The same time period applies. If you are at all confused about this please contact the settlement administrator.
You will be asked to fill out detailed information in the claim form form. You will have to identify yourself as either individuals or businesses. Then you will fill out personal information and then go on to the next page. Make sure that you complete each element that has a red asterisk. If you see that that means that you will not be able to continue on to the next page until you have filled that out. Please make sure that you provide accurate information.
