New Airline Laws

The Department of Transportation has issued new guidelines for domestic flights restricting how long airlines can hold passengers on the tarmac during delays. Among the new rules:

Airlines would be required to provide food and water after a two-hour delay.

*Passengers would have to be deplaned after three hours.

*Airline staff would have to keep toilets working.

*Airlines must provide passengers with an e-mail address and a mailing address for filing complaints.

Civil penalties of up to $27,500 per passenger would be paid to the government for violating any aviation consumer rule.
