The ruling is a defeat for Allegiant Travel Co, Southwest Airlines Co and Spirit Airlines Inc, which challenged all or some of the rules.

Evidence submitted "sufficiently support the intuitive conclusion that customers are likely to be deceived by price quotes significantly lower than the actual cost of travel," Judge David Tatel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit wrote.

In morning trade, Allegiant was down about 1 percent, Southwest down about 0.5 percent and Spirit up about 1.2 percent. U.S. markets were lower overall.
