DOJ investigating airlines for collusion on fares
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Justice is handing out subpoenas to several major airlines. It’s investigating whether they colluded to keep fares high.
American Airlines, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines all say they’ve received subpoenas and are cooperating.
There are allegations that some airlines limited the number of available seats they had to keep prices inflated.
The airlines involved in the probe control more than 80 percent of the seats in the country.
