According to reports, Sabre Holdings Corp has officially asked a judge to bring an antirrust claim against US Airways Group Inc. US Airways had sued the flight data company in 2011 for holding a monopoly on that data; but in a filing last Friday, Sabre has requested a counterclaim in Mangattan based on new evidence allegedly received during litigation.
