Public comment on Enhanced Airline Passenger Protections

In 2010, the Department of Transportation issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) as to enhancing airline passenger protections. I filed a comment as to one of the subjects under discussion: whether and how airlines should be required to disclose fees through GDS’s, and what might happen if the DOT imposed such a duty without airlines contracting in advance to obtain such service from GDS’s.
