Enforcement Policy Regarding Unfair Exclusionary Conduct in the Air Transportation Industry. Findings and Conclusions on the Economic, Policy and Legal Issues. Docket OST-98-3713

For the reasons explained in this paper and the accompanying paper from Professors Oster and Strong, this Administration has concluded that apparent unfair competitive practices have occurred in the airline industry. Such practices are likely to cause consumers to pay higher fares and receive poorer service than they would obtain in a competitive market. The Department, working with the Justice Department, has an obligation to prevent such practices. Our findings and analysis will support any further efforts by the Department to eliminate unfair competitive practices that are likely to deny consumers the benefit of competition.
