WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) – A woman alleges JetBlue is deceiving its customers who purchase travel insurance policies by not disclosing the company's financial interest in the policy sales. 

Randy O'Kane, individually and behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint Oct. 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against JetBlue Airways Corp. alleging unjust enrichment, false advertising and fraudulent concealment. 

According to the suit, JetBlue encourages customers to purchase third-party travel insurance through Allianz Global Assistance on its website and causes customers to pay for an "illegal kickback."

The plaintiff seeks restitution for all money or property allegedly wrongfully obtained by JetBlue, interests, trial by jury and other just relief. The plaintiff is represented by Melissa Emert of The Stull, Stull & Brody Law Firm in New York City; Rosemary Rivas of The Levi & Korsinsky LLP in San Francisco; Marc Godino of Glancy Prongay & Murray Law Firm in Los Angeles; Kevin Landau of Taus, Cebulash & Landau Law Firm LLP in New York City; and Daniel Hedlund of The Gustafson Gluek Law Firm PLLC in Minneapolis.
