Lawyers in Airline Case Present 2 Plans: Attorneys in a lawsuit accusing major airlines of price fixing argued over how to get word to millions of travelers who might have a claim. In Atlanta, U.S. District Judge Marvin H. Shoob was presented with two plans. The lawyers bringing the suit hope to use media advertising, while the airlines want mail notification where possible--at greater expense to the other side. The lawsuit accuses nine major airlines of using their computerized reservations system to monitor fares and fix prices. In September, Shoob granted the case class-action status, meaning it could include almost anyone who bought a ticket to any of 23 hub cities over the past three years.
