A lawsuit filed by Amtrak demands that Washington, D.C.’s Union Station take down advertising by Delta Air Lines, states a media report, which added:

“The lawsuit contends that Delta competes with Amtrak.

“It cites Amtrak’s sublease at the station that says advertising by competing transportation services is not allowed without consent, according to the suit filed May 25 against Union Station Investco LLC in U.S. district court in Washington D.C.

““Delta is a competitor of Amtrak’s for the business of travelers nationwide, and particularly in the Northeast corridor,” according to Amtrak’s legal filing. “The D.C. /New York market is Amtrak’s largest and most important market anchoring the frequently traveled Northeast Corridor…. Winning Amtrak customers’ business is undoubtedly Delta’s goal,” it said.

“Delta flies out of Washington, D.C. “to numerous locations also served by Amtrak, and particularly major metropolitan areas along the Northeast Corridor of the United States, including New York City and Boston,” according to Amtrak’s complaint.”
