AIRLINES ANTITRUST SETTLEMENT APPROVED

 ATLANTA, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released by the Settlement Administration Committee in the Domestic Air Transportation Antitrust Litigation in a form adopted by the committee and approved by the court:
 "The federal district court in Atlanta granted final approval of a settlement in the lawsuit against American Airlines, Inc.; Continental Airlines, Inc.; Delta Air Lines, Inc.; Midway Airlines, Inc.; Northwest Airlines, Inc.; Pan American World Airways, Inc.; Trans World Airlines, Inc.; United Airlines, Inc.; and USAir, Inc. The class action suit, filed in June 1990, challenged certain practices related to the airlines' use of an industry-owned computerized fare publishing service.
 "If you have not already done so, you may file a claim if, between January 1, 1988, and June 30, 1992, you purchased a domestic airline passenger ticket from one of those airlines for travel to, from, or connecting on a single airline at the following hubs -- Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago (O'Hare and Midway); Cincinnati; Cleveland; Dallas/Fort Worth; Dayton, Ohio; Denver; Detroit; Houston (IAH); Indianapolis; Kansas City, Mo.; Los Angeles; Memphis, Tenn.; Miami; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Nashville, Tenn.; Newark, N.J.; New York (J.F.K. and La Guardia); Orlando, Fla.; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Raleigh/Durham, N.C.; St. Louis; Salt Lake City; San Francisco; San Jose, Calif.; Syracuse, N.Y.; and Washington (National and Dulles). The person or entity who paid for the ticket at the time of purchase is the proper claimant. If that person was reimbursed the entire amount paid for the ticket, however, the reimbursing party is the claimant.
 "You may obtain a claim form by writing to Airlines Antitrust Litigation, P.O. Box 209, Philadelphia, PA 19107. Your travel agent also may have claim forms. The claim filing deadline has been extended to June 1, 1993.
 "It could be 12 to 15 months before you receive your certificates, which can be used as a discount toward future travel. Certificate distribution may occur at a later date if the approval of the settlement is appealed. If you have already mailed in your claim form, you need not do anything further unless contacted by the Claims Administrator."
