Last year I told you about the Federal Aviation Administration Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act , which brought new consumer protections for air travelers. For instance, the act limits the time passengers can be held in a plane on the tarmac during flight delays.
Back in June, the Department of Transportation (DOT) proposed a new rule that came with a number of new consumer provisions. Monday is the deadline for public comments on the rule that would:
• provide an increase in compensation for passengers involuntarily bumped from flights
Tell DOT what you think of the new rule's provisions at this regulations.gov page .
