Sabre gets court extension

Sabre reports that Texas State District Court Judge Don Cosby has granted it a 60-day extension in the Texas anti-trust lawsuit filed by American Airlines (AA) last year. The trial is now set to begin Oct. 3, 2012. In a brief statement, Sabre said that: AA’s claims are without merit and that it continues to believe that its shared stakeholders would be better served by negotiations, rather than litigation, between the companies. And the statement continues: To that end, we hope that AA will end this wasteful process. However, since AA continues its litigious course, we will continue to mount a vigorous defense. Sabre also said that its travel agency, corporate and consumer customers will have continued access to AA content through the Sabre global distribution system throughout the duration of the airline’s Texas state lawsuit against Sabre.
