About this Order
This consent order concerns unauthorized air transportation by Global Airline Services, Inc., (Global) and Harold J. Pareti (Mr. Pareti and Global are collectively referred to as “Respondents”). Since at least 2009, Mr. Pareti and Global, a business entity over which he exercises absolute ownership, direction, and control, have engaged in the provision of air transportation as an indirect air carrier without holding requisite economic authority from the Department of Transportation. This consent order also concerns separate and distinct violations of the Department’s prohibition against unfair and deceptive practices and unfair methods of competition, 49 U.S.C. § 41712, arising from Respondents’ marketing and sale of air transportation services ultimately operated by a company that did not hold proper authority from the Department. This order directs Respondents to cease and desist from such further violations and assesses a compromise civil penalty of $120,000.
