Air Canada, WestJet lawsuit alleges collusion over baggage fees

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.

Air Canada announced virtually the same fee structure on Sept. 18.

Moore.
