Airline Consumer Protection Bill Includes Disability Provisions
While the debate over the FAA Reauthorization remains unclear, Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) has introduced an airline consumer protection bill that includes the disability provisions from the Senate's version of the FAA. This legislation, the “Airline Consumer Protection Act” (H.R. 5291), includes a variety of consumer protection provisions such as increased transparency on fees and improved access to broad consumer protection information. The bill also includes the PVA-supported disability provisions that are currently being considered in the FAA Reauthorization.
