El AI Israel Airlines, Ltd. 2005-10-6
This consent order concerns advertisements on the web site of El A1 Israel Airlines, Ltd. (El Al), (www.elal.co.il), as well as certain printed air fare advertisements published by the carrier, that stated separately a fuel surcharge in violation of 14 CFR 399.84, the Department’s rule on full fare advertising. These advertisements, in addition, constituted an unfair and deceptive trade practice and an unfair method of competition in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712. Based on these violations, the order assesses a compromise civil penalty of $20,000 and directs the carrier to cease and desist from future similar violations.
