Hooray for the passenger!
Finally, a bill of rights for the passengers! The Department of Transportation finalized a set of new regulations that took effect on Tuesday in favor of travelers. Passengers will be compensated for lost luggage, short delays and/or getting bumped off flights, for up to four times the ticket value. Also, these rules will force airlines to display any and all fees on their websites, and allow passengers to hold and return a ticket within 24 hours without a penalty. In addition, it will limit the amount of time a plane sits on the tarmac.
This is great news for the consumer since ticket prices have gone up and airline service has gone down. Finally, we have some rights…
Have a great Thursday…it’s almost Friday!
