U.S. v. United Continental: An Examination of the DOJ's Recent Monopolization Suit Against United's Deal to Acquire Takeoff-and-Landing Rights
12 PM EST
In November, the U.S. Department of Justice filed an antitrust suit against United Continental Holdings to block its acquisition of takeoff-and-landing slots from Delta Air Lines at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport. This suit claims that United, which already controls 73% of the available slots at Newark, would be able to impose higher fares on passengers if the acquisition went through. This panel will examine the DOJ's allegations, including whether a single airport can constitute a relevant market if there are other major airports in the area. The panel also will explore United's possible defenses.
