In his ruling denying Priceline’s motion to dismiss in its entirety, Judge Chatigny held that Plaintiff had adequately stated a claim for relief because “it is plausible that a reasonable consumer would interpret the contract language to include a promise not to add hidden surcharges.”
Jeffrey Kaliel, attorney for Plaintiff and the putative class and a partner with Tycko & Zavareei LLP, commented, “Priceline’s practice of adding surcharges to Spirit Airline tickets is in violation of its best price guarantee. The Court’s ruling on the motion to dismiss is the first step toward achieving an important victory for consumers.”
