SAS under pressure to compensate customers.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

SAS, a Scandinavian airline, is under increasing pressure to pay compensation to customers who paid excessive fares under its cartel with the Danish airline Maersk Air.

SAS stated yesterday (15 August) said that it was following the debate but had no immediate plans to compensate customers.

Meanwhile Ake Fagelberg, the chief executive of Foretagarnas Riksorganisation (Sweden's federation of private enterprises), has said that the group is lobbying for SAS to pay compensation.

"We are pulling out all the stops and if we haven't had any reaction from SAS by 24 August [when SAS is due to hold a board meeting] we may decide to sue the company," Fagelberg told Reuters.
