Southwest Airlines

AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, ATA Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Midwest Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and US Airways Group issued the following statement regarding today's ruling in their favor on unfair and excessive terminal charges at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX):

"We are gratified by today's recommended decision in favor of the airlines serving Terminals 1 and 3 at LAX. The Administrative Law Judge's ruling upholds clear and longstanding principles of law that are designed to protect consumers and air carriers from excessive, unreasonable, and discriminatory payments for the use of an essential public facility. It is unfortunate that Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) once again compelled the airlines to initiate expensive and time-consuming legal proceedings before the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) in order to protect our customers, employees and shareholders from LAWA's egregious actions."

The airlines filed a joint complaint in February with the DOT in opposition to new terminal charges at LAX that dramatically increased the airlines' costs.

The Secretary of Transportation will issue a final decision on this matter by June 15, 2007.
