Key Dates

Event Deadline

Submit a Claim Form

Submitted Online or Postmarked by August 18, 2023

If you are a Settlement Class Member who has already received a refund from Turkish Airlines and would like to receive the $10.00 USD Cash Option or $45.00 USD Voucher Option, you must submit a Claim Form.

If you are a Settlement Class Member who has not, to date, received a refund from Turkish Airlines and would like to receive your refund plus an additional one percent (1%) of the unused ticket price, or in the case of partially used tickets, one percent (1%) of the price of the unused flight segment (i.e., a 101% refund), you must submit a Claim Form.

Exclude Yourself from the Settlement Class

Postmarked by September 15, 2023

If you do not want to participate in the Settlement and instead you want to keep all of your rights to sue Turkish Airlines individually about the Claims being resolved in the Settlement, then you must take steps to get out of the Settlement Class. This is called asking to be excluded from, or “opting out” of, the Settlement Class.

Object to the Settlement

Received by July 17, 2023

If you are a Settlement Class Member, you can object to the Settlement if you do not like any part of it. You can also object to Class Counsel’s request for attorneys’ fees, expenses, and costs, and the service awards for the Class Representatives. You can give reasons why you think the Court should not approve the Settlement or award the requested fees, costs, or expenses. The Court will consider your views.

Final Approval Hearing

Held on August 24, 2023

The Court will hold a Final Approval Hearing to decide whether to approve the Settlement and whether to grant Class Counsel’s motion for attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses. You may attend and you may ask to speak, but you do not have to do either one.
