    How can I proceed with the claim? The ticket class on the claim file doesn’t work and I’m stuck on there.

    ADMIN – Hi Yong,

    Give the class administrator a call on the number above and they should be able to help you resolve the issue.

    • Joseph says:

      Are you entering the amount of tickets for each class or trying to enter the letter corresponding to the class? I thought I had to enter the letter i.e. (W,Y) but found out it was just the number of tickets you had purchased for that class such as 1 or 2.

  2. Waynold V. Pangelinan says:

    I’ve traveled numerous times to Korea on Asiana Airlines during those years, if I am mistaken about 25 times. I cannot log onto the claim form. Please advise what is the next step? Thanks, Waynold

    ADMIN – Hi Waynold,

    Try using a different computer or internet browser. If that doesn’t work for you, give the class administrators a call and request a paper form be mailed to you.

  3. Ria Tran says:

    Are people who have used Korean Air to transfer flights eligible for claim? Or is it Korea to US (vice versa) only?

  4. Wong Per-Son says:

    So I have heard that if you submit many claims to the Rusk Consulting company at the Faribault, MN address that you will be excluded from other claims. Can anybody confirm or deny this?

    SENDING CLAIMS TO MINNESOTA, THEY WILL REJECT CLAIMS IN SOUTHERN CALIF…THEY ARE FULL…OF SH__…..

  6. ryan says:

    I’ve used korean air multiple times to head to JAPAN outbound US, these flights are usually pre-connecting flights that end up to Korea (aka layover flights), does this count?

  7. jack says:

    According to this … we estimate that the average settlement will be $500 in cash plus $360 in vouchers.

    Person who use those airline 1 time, and 20 time … do we get same compensation?

    ADMIN – Hi Jack,

    I would expect the settlement amount will be significantly larger for someone that flew multiple times in that time window.

  8. Nick wiseman says:

    When will the money be disbursed?

  9. sarah richmond says:

    Anyone hear any updates on this case???

  10. Editha Lumahan says:

    Has anyone heard the status on this claim?

  11. John Coburn says:

    They should have sent our checks by now. What is the deal? Can we ask the judge to expedite???

  12. Sarah says:

    Good afternoon,

    For the current case status, the settlement did receive final approval on December 31, 2013, however, the case is currently under appeal. We do not know how long it will take to resolve these appeals.

    All appeals must be resolved before distribution of award amounts can begin.

    Thank you.
