A request by Orbitz, Travelport and Sabre to dismiss a federal antitrust lawsuit filed by American Airlines was denied.

Judge Terry Means of the U.S. District Court in Fort Worth, Texas, said American’s antitrust allegations were reasonable.

“The court is satisfied that American has alleged sufficient facts to support a reasonable inference that Sabre and Travelport orchestrated a group boycott of American," Means determined.

Means made his ruling on Aug. 7 but the filing had been sealed until Tuesday.

Last week, American, Travelport and Orbitz jointly asked the U.S. District Court to stay AA's antitrust case, in order to give the companies time to “engage in renewed discussions.”
