Ansett legal battles continue

Australian carrier Ansett ceased operations in September 2001, but the legal battles continue.

Most recently a sports team agreed to pay AU$18,000 for tickets that were owed. The team argued that the frequent flyer miles they lost when the airline went under were worth at least that much and should cancel out the debt. In the end, the miles didn’t have value and they agreed to pay most of the monies owed.
