A Dozen New Airline Regulations We Need Now
Every day, I receive e-mails from disgruntled fliers who feel like they've been wronged by the airlines. Some of these complaints I have less sympathy for, frankly, such as the guy who put $5,000 in cash in his checked luggage and was shocked to discover it had been stolen (you know you're not supposed to put anything valuable in checked bags, right?). But other airline shenanigans I hear about raise my blood pressure. A few less than kind readers of this column have accused me of being a "shill" for the airlines, but honestly, I'm not. And although the U.S. DOT has recently come up with some new regulations that take the airline industry to task, such as the tarmac delay rule and upping the compensation for involuntarily bumped passengers, I think we need some other rules to protect passengers. And before someone says, "Yeah, but these regulations will cost the airlines more and they'll increase fares," I say maybe people would fly more if we had some of these protections in place. Southwest Airlines, for example, doesn't charge a ticket change fee and it's doing quite nicely, thank you.
Here are 12 new regulations I'd like to see the DOT impose.
From the Mailbag: Going So Soon, Dear?
Q: Why is it that these sale fares are always so short term? Most end long before the time period I need to travel.
A: Read on.
