This consent order concerns violations by BlueStarJets, LLC, (BlueStar) of the Department’s aviation licensing requirement, 49 U.S.C. § 41101, and regulatory and statutory prohibitions against ticket agents engaging in unfair and deceptive trade practices and unfair methods of competition found in 14 CFR 399.80 and 49 U.S.C. § 41712. These violations are the result of BlueStar having held out common carriage air service without the requisite economic authority from the Department and having misrepresented the quality of service and safety record of cornpanies with which it
arranged air transportation services.
