12:54 EDTAFLYY, AAWW, IAG, DLAKY, BAIRY, AAR, UALUnited, Atlas Air, British Airways among airlines fined by COMCO
Switzerland's Competition Commission, or COMCO, prohibits a price cartel in the context of air freight. Between 2000 and 2005 several airlines agreed on certain elements of the price for air freight transport. The COMCO fined the airlines 11 million Swiss Francs in total in connection with the agreement. The investigation of the Competition Commission revealed that the airlines had agreed on freight rates, fuel surcharges, war risk surcharges, customs clearance surcharges for the U.S. and the commissioning of surcharges. All those elements are part of the price that is charged for air freight transport. This is a horizontal price agreement case.The COMCO fines the following airlines: Korean Air Lines Co. Ltd., Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW), AMR Corporation (AAR), United Continental Holdings (UAL), SAS AB, Japan Airlines Co., Ltd., Singapore Airlines Limited, Cathay Pacific Airways Limited, Cargolux Airlines International S. A., British Airways Plc (BAIRY) and Air France-KLM SA (AFLYY). The Deutsche Lufthansa AG, as part of the cartel, triggered the legal proceedings by self-denunciation. Thus this airline benefits from complete immunity from the sanction. As subsidiary of the Deutsche Lufthansa AG (DLAKY), Swiss International Air Lines AG also benefits from full immunity from the sanction. After the initiation of the legal proceedings, British Airways Plc., Cathay Pacific Airways Limited, Japan Airlines Co., Ltd., Air France-KLM SA and Cargolux Airlines International S.A. submitted leniency applications. These leniency applicants benefit from substantial reductions of the sanctions. Reference Link

06:08 EDTAFLYYAir France, Delta, Alitalia look to resolve EC investigation
The European Commission has invited interested third parties to comment on commitments proposed by Air France (AFLYY), Alitalia and Delta (DAL) to address concerns that their transatlantic cooperation may harm competition for premium passengers on the Paris-New York route and for all passengers on the Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York routes, in breach of EU antitrust rules. The three airlines have offered to make landing and take-off slots available at both ends of the Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York routes to facilitate the market entry of competitors. They are also prepared to enter into agreements which would enable competitors to offer tickets on their flights and facilitate access to connecting traffic, as well as to provide access to their frequent flyer programs on all three routes. If the market test confirms that the proposed commitments remedy the competition concerns, the Commission may make them legally binding on the companies. At this stage, the Commission has concerns that the extensive cooperation between Air France/KLM, Alitalia and Delta in the framework of the Skyteam alliance, involving profit-sharing and the joint management of schedules, pricing and capacity, may result in higher prices on the following routes: Paris-New York, Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York. The parties have jointly offered a set of commitments, to alleviate the Commission's concerns. The commitments are primarily aimed at enabling competing airlines to start operating or extend existing operations on the affected routes by lowering barriers to entry or expansion. The airlines offered to make available landing and take-off slots at Amsterdam, Rome and/or New York John F. Kennedy/Newark Liberty airports on the Amsterdam-New York and Rome-New York routes. The companies committed to enter into fare combinability and special prorate agreements with competitors who start operating new non-stop services or increase their non-stop services on the three routes. For Paris-New York, this also applies to existing non-stop competitors on the route.

The CDC announced earlier that a second health care worker who has been diagnosed with the Ebola virus traveled by air on October 13, a day before she reported symptoms.

11:03 EDTUALGogo selected to provide in-flight Wi-Fi on United's two-cabin jet fleet
Gogo (GOGO) announced that it has been selected by United Airlines (UAL) to bring its in-flight Internet service to United's two-cabin regional jet fleet. Installation of Wi-Fi services, which will involve more than 200 aircraft, is expected to begin later this year. The United Express aircraft will be the first regional jets in the United States to be outfitted with Gogo's ATG-4, which more than triples the peak speeds to an aircraft when compared to Gogo's original ATG service that launched in 2008. Additionally, United and Gogo have agreed to partner on offering in-flight entertainment on two-cabin regional jets, beginning early next year, enabling passengers to watch movies and television shows on their Wi-Fi enabled devices. Along with regional jet Wi-Fi and personal device entertainment, late next year, United plans to begin a trial of Gogo's 2Ku satellite Wi-Fi on five of the carrier's aircraft that operate its p.s. "Premium Service" between New York JFK and Los Angeles and New York JFK and San Francisco. These aircraft currently offer Gogo's ATG-4 product.
