Default Air Canada Sues Obama Administration Over Ban

In a letter from August 11, the U.S. Department of Transportation required that Air Canada cancel its season-long sports charters.

The letter, which was filed in a federal court in Washington, D.C., referred to concerns of "cabotage" -- what it calls the prohibited carrying of passengers or cargo by a foreign airliner.

Air Canada said this directive has caused confusion and concerns among hockey teams, given that the NHL season will soon get underway.

According to court documents, the airliner said: "It is wreaking havoc on the hockey season, may damage the National Basketball Association season, and exposes Air Canada to claims from its customers. Air Canada seeks a declaration vacating this directive and requests relief in time to salvage at least part of the upcoming sports season."

The Anaheim Ducks have already ended the first year of its three-year contract with the airliner. Also, the St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins have said they may seek other transportation as a result.
