MOSCOW, November 9 - RAPSI, Alyona Yegorova. A court postponed until December 20 its hearing of a $4.8 million lawsuit filed by Aeroflot, Russia's leading airline against, VTB-24 bank, the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) reported on Wednesday.

Aeroflot seeks to recover losses resulting from the collapse of its online ticket sales system.

The accident resulted from a hacker attack on the airline's online ticket sales system on July 16, 2010. The aftermath of the hacker attack was eliminated only a week later.

The judge said that Aeroflot submitted a list of customers who failed to book tickets during the online system collapse. The bank has not yet studied the case materials and the Aeroflot's representative failed to attend the Tuesday hearing.

VTB 24 earlier filed a counterclaim against the airline, claiming $847,000 for expenses and fees for American Express card authorizations, among other damages.

Aeroflot is a member of the SkyTeam Alliance, which flies to 898 destinations across 169 countries. Its fleet is based in Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport
