(1) Size of aircraft should be irrelevant. I was trapped on a very small (approx 21 passengers) aircraft, in the hot summer sun, for hours, with no ventilation. Outrageous! Being cooked in a small tin can is no better than being cooked in a big one!
ALL flights should be covered — it’s no more tolerable being trapped on the tarmac at a small airport than at at large one! Nor any difference if it’s a domestic or international flight! The passenger experience is the same!
Yes, ALL these DOT proposals should be enacted.
(1) Advertised prices should reflicct the ENTIRE price that must be paid.
(2) Optional services should be opt-in
(3) Post-purchase increases should be permitted only if the purchaser is permitted to cance/change plans without penalty.
Baggage is normally carried by passengers. Its transport should be part of the advertised price.
Why is the SIZE of the plane of any import? The problems with passenger experience are not dependant on aircraft size!
ANY airline that operates into or out of a US airport should be bound by the same rules, whether flights are regularly scheduled or charter. Otherwise, there is unfair competition.
I am trying to comment, see if this works
As a parent of preschoolers I am very concerned about Tarmac delays. I do not want to be trapped in a plane with my children (and neither does anyone else). Children do not understand security threats or delays. They have needs that must be met. I hope their rights are represented as well. I appended my comment here because it does not matter the size of the plane. It just matters if a person has their liberty restricted for some arbitrary reason. The airlines have a responsibility to their passengers by boarding a place I am not giving up my welfare. I am simply agreeing to fly. If that is not possible, then let me deplane and in the meantime keep the environment comfortable.
