Bacardi Claims Hundreds of Cases of Cognac Missing From American Airlines Flight

Liquor company Bacardi Limited sued American Airlines on Tuesday over missing cases of cognac worth more than $65,000.

In a complaint filed to the US District Court for the Central District of California, Bacardi claimed that six pallets, roughly 420 cases of cognac, with three additional cases went missing. 

The liquor company said it tasked American Airlines to transport 24 pallets with 1,680 cases from Paris, France, to Los Angeles on or around September 20, 2021. The total worth of the missing cases reached $65,820.72.

Lawyers of the liquor company said it demanded the airline to pay the amount, but American Airlines has not taken any actions to compensate the missing cognacs.

Bacardi took a legal action against American Airline since the cognac cases went missing under the possession and custody of the airline company.

American Airlines started to ship cargo on September 2020 to make up for lost revenues during the pandemic.
