American Airlines Group Inc. agreed to pay $45 million to end a consumer antitrust lawsuit accusing it and three other major U.S. airlines of colluding to limit plane capacity and drive up domestic airfares.

The Fort Worth, Texas-based carrier is the second to enter a settlement in the three-year-old litigation. Southwest Airlines Co. won preliminary court approval for its offer to pay $15 million and cooperate in the case in January. Also named as defendants are United Continental Holdings Inc. and Delta Air Lines Inc.
