New Airline Rules
Some new airline rules went into effect this week. Pretty sure you’ll be happy with these , especially if you’ve flown recently and had some bad experiences.
Here are the changes that took effect on January 24th.
1. All airlines must disclose all taxes and fees in their advertised prices. In other words no more looking up a price and seeing say: $249 only to click purchase and suddenly see $300.
2. Airlines will no no longer be able to raise prices even after you’ve purchased the ticket. Some fine print used to say they had this right and you’d have to pay before you could board.
3. Airlines will have to now promptly tell passengers either by phone or email if there are any delays of more than 30 minutes.
4. Baggage fees must be disclosed in advance and the same fees must apply for every leg of the flight.
5. You’ll now have 24 hours to cancel your reservation! However, you’ll only be able to do this if you’ve booked the flight at least a week in advance. Any tickets purchased with less than 7 days of advance are not covered under this “24 hour waiting period” rule.
