Granting air carriers an anti-trust immunity for the purpose of discussing joint procurement of aircraft was opposed today by the Coucil on Wage and Price Stability. The Council’s opposition was made in a filing before the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) in response to an application to the CAB by Eastern Airlines on June 22, 1976.

Ordinarily, such activity would violate the anti-trust laws. However, the carriers would be immune from prosecution if they first obtained permission from the CAB.
