Recently there has been some particular insight that has been given into six particular highlights from the department of transportation’s new passenger friendly airline guides. In more detail some of these particular highlights include the aspect that more airlines will share more complete operational data, as well as a few other things in particular.
- The Obama Administration on Tuesday announced a series of relatively minor rule changes and proposals it says will protect airline passengers and encourage more competition among carriers.
- “The goal is to have a more robust consumer marketplace and to create a more competitive marketplace,” Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx said in a briefing announcing the new measures.
- Currently, the government publishes a list detailing how often airlines mishandle bags. The data ranks airlines based on how often they mishandle bags per every 1,000 passengers they carry.
“Large airlines will have to report how often they mishandle wheelchairs. The DOT wants consumers to have information so they “can easily compare carriers and make informed travel decisions.””
