About this Order
This order concerns violations of the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), 49 U.S.C. § 41705,1 which prohibits discrimination in air travel against individuals with disabilities. Since the apparent ACAA violations occurred in foreign air transportation they constitute violations of 49 U.S.C. § 41310(a), which prohibits an air carrier from subjecting a person to unreasonable discrimination in foreign air transportation. ACAA violations also constitute unfair and deceptive trade practices in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712. This order directs Compania Mexicana de Aviacion, S.A. de C.V. (Mexicana) to cease and desist from future violations of the ACAA and assesses a compromise civil penalty of $75,000 for such violations.
