American Airlines, Inc., and Delta Air Lines, Inc., have filed separate lawsuits against a network of vacation clubs that allegedly misappropriated their names or logos to gain membership, The Dallas Morning News reported on September 19.
These airlines said the network of vacation clubs have blatantly misused their names, often to deceive the public and scam money.
The American Airlines lawsuit, which was filed in a Texas district court, alleged that the airline’s intellectual property was used on mass-mailed postcards and letters and was used to trick customers into thinking they won round-trip tickets.
One of the defendants in the Delta lawsuit, Curtis Lemley, is the owner of three companies, Nationwide Travel Promotions, King Travel Promotions, and American Travel Suppliers, all of which are being sued by the airline.
