Compania Mexicana de Aviacion S.A. de C.V. 2006-4-18
This consent order concerns advertisements published by Compania Mexicana de Aviacion S.A. de C.V. (Mexicana) that failed to comply with the Department’s rule on full fare advertising, 14 CFR 399.84, and thereby violated the statutory proscription in 49 U.S.C. § 41712 against unfair and deceptive practices. In advertisements published in several widely circulated newspapers between November 2005 and February 2006, the carrier offered fares without appropriately disclosing all taxes and fees associated with the quoted fares. The order directs Mexicana to cease and desist from further violations and assesses a compromise civil penalty.
