WATCH: Department of Transportation withdrawing proposal to force airline baggage fee…

The Department of Transportation announced online that the proposed rule to force airlines to disclose baggage fees has been withdrawn. An Obama-era policy, work on the proposal was halted when Donald Trump took office in January. The department cited the proposal as being “of limited public benefit” and would incur “significant costs” on airlines required to report on fees. Though airlines are currently required to disclose fees, many argue the information is difficult for consumers to find. Airlines, like all other businesses, need the freedom to determine which third-parties they do business with and how best to market, display, and sell their products. Critics say it leaves passengers vulnerable to unfair pricing that makes comparison shopping for tickets needlessly challenging.
