DOT today entered a consent decree with Lufthansa Airlines with a civil penalty of $50,000 related to the airlines failure to timely and fully compensate passengers for the loss or delay in delivery of checked baggage.
DOT states Lufthansa provided passengers letters with language that attempted to minimize Lufthansa’s liability while also following erroneous policy in handling the monetary claims of passengers in violation of Montreal Convention regulations.
