Air Canada, WestJet face possible lawsuit over baggage fees

Thu, 2016-09-29 12:30

Air Canada and WestJet are facing a potential class action lawsuit after imposing checked baggage fees only days apart.

The proposed class action alleges that the two airlines colluded to impose the fees and have unjustly enriched themselves in the process.

Karl Moore, an aviation expert at McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management, found the collusion allegations far fetched. "I think it's highly unlikely they would collude. It's not the nature of the beast, they're just fierce competitors," Moore said.

Un projet d'action collective vise les frais de bagage d'Air Canada et WestJet

Thu, 2016-09-29 12:26

Les transporteurs aériens Air Canada et WestJet pourraient devoir se défendre contre une action collective pour avoir commencé à imposer à leurs voyageurs des frais pour les bagages enregistrés à quelques jours d'intervalle.

Aux yeux de Karl Moore, un expert en aviation de la faculté de gestion de l'Université McGill, les allégations de collusion sont tirées par les cheveux.

«Je crois qu'il est très improbable qu'il y ait de la collusion, ce n'est pas dans la nature (des transporteurs), ils ne sont que de féroces concurrents», a expliqué M. Moore.
