The rules, which go into effect Thursday, make it easier to figure out how much plane tickets actually cost:
- All taxes and fees must be a part of the advertised price.
-All baggage fees and other surcharges must be disclosed up front.
Other changes taking effect:
- All passengers must be notified of delays of 30+ minutes, diversions, and cancellations.
- Price increases after purchase are forbidden. (Really? Can you believe they could legally do this before?)
- Reservations can be held for 24 hours without payment, or passengers can cancel with a full refund within the first 24 hours.
What do you think of the new airline rules? Do they make things simpler? Are there any other changes you'd like to see happen?
