Companies in the news:
Air Canada (TSX:AC). Down 16 cents to $41.73. Canadian airlines are among hundreds of carriers asking the Federal Court of Appeal to quash new rules that beef up compensation for passengers subjected to delayed flights and damaged luggage. Air Canada and Porter Airlines Inc., along with 17 other applicants that include the International Air Transport Association (IATA) — which has some 290 member airlines — state in a court filing that required payments under the country’s new air passenger bill of rights violates international standards and should be rendered invalid. The court application argues the new provisions contravene the Montreal Convention, a multilateral treaty, in part by setting compensation amounts based on the length of the delay and “irrespective of the actual damage suffered.”
