Too often fees are hidden until payment is made. And options are not offered to delete those fees. ALL fees should be disclosed upfront, in all advertising, and on all websites! No exceptions!
Unbundled fares doesn’t give airlines the right to deceptively advertise costs. ALL costs should be disclosed in an a la carte menu upfront!
Banning peanuts is lunacy! Allergy sufferers know they have an issue. What next? Ban peanuts from being outside or in a kids lunchbox to prevent any exposure anywhere? Lets get real! A simple warning peanuts may be present on a flight should suffice!
Bumping should require double compensation to the bumped passenger. The inconvenience and effort needed to rebook in today’s world are huge! One should be compensated accordingly. However, airlines should first be allowed to seek voluntary bumps and negotiate compensation with them. Only forced bumps should be compensated at higher rates.
This is plain and simple government overreach and interference! The benefit will never exceed costs and will drive many good companies from the web! NO new stupid rules! The economy is weak enough as is! Kill this project!
Thanks for your thoughts, Ken and Joel, and welcome to Regulation Rooom. We will keep your posts in mind as we prepare our summary of the discussion on this site–come back periodically to see if we are done, and to read other users comments–you keep us honest!
In the mean time, check out the rest of the website and rule proposals. We’d love to hear your thoughts!
