U.S. AIRLINES UNDER INVESTIGATION

Hagens Berman has filed class-action lawsuits against United Airlines and Delta Airlines and is investigating multiple airlines operating flights within the U.S. Our current cases involve the following but are not limited to:

ABOUT AIRLINE REFUND DENIALS

Recently, consumers across the country have reported that airlines such as United and Delta have denied their requested refunds related to cancelled flights within, to and/or from the U.S.

Since the global outbreak of novel coronavirus, thousands of flights have been cancelled and disrupted in an unforeseen circumstance that has greatly impacted individuals seeking to travel in the U.S. Consumers have requested refunds for cancelled flights and terminated travel, only to have their requests for refunds denied by airlines.

In March 2020, United Airlines unilaterally changed its policy to no issued refunds to its customers experiencing cancelled flights due to COVID-19. Instead, those seeking refunds for their cancelled flights with United only receive vouchers for travel.

We believe hundreds of thousands of would-be travelers have been affected by this underhanded practice from airlines to deny travelers refunds for flights cancelled due to COVID-19.

AM I ENTITLED TO A REFUND IF MY FLIGHT IS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19?

We believe that United, Delta and other airlines refusing refunds to their customers may have violated regulations and/or state law. Regardless, these airlines owe their customers better in light of this unforeseen global tragedy, and we intend to fight for the rights of airline customers to their refunds for cancelled flights and travel.

YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS

Hagens Berman believes that you have rights to a refund, and we intend to hold airlines to the law. Our attorneys will fight for your right to payback, as well as for an injunction seeking to force airlines to put an end to their practice of denying refunds for cancelled flights due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
