Air Transat “Mexican Game” Class Action

We have launched a class action against Air Transat on behalf of passengers who fell victim to the airline’s so-called “Mexican Game”.

In May, 2017, investigative reporting revealed that Air Tansat routinely instructs its contractors to misrepresent flight itineraries to consumers and file false flight plans with aviation authorities. The objective of the scheme, which Air Transat internally calls the “Mexican Game”, is to utilize sub-standard aircraft and thereby reduce operational costs. A detailed description of the Mexican Game can be found here.

This action is in its early stages. We will provide further information as the case develops.


This case is being case managed by Justice Winteringham of the British Columbia Supreme Court. We anticipate applying to certify this action as class proceeding in 2018.

Media Coverage

The Mexican Game was uncovered by investigative reporter John Nicol at the CBC. John’s phenomenal reporting can be found here.

The launch of this class action received widespread national coverage. We have collated a sample of the coverage here.

CHEK/CBC TV ran a feature piece on the class action as part of its nightly news magazine. The piece featured an on-camera interview with Rosenberg Law’s David Moriarty. It may be watched here.
