DOT drops proposal to force airlines to disclose bag fees

Thursday Dec 7 Read more: Daily Herald

The department said in a notice posted online Thursday that it is withdrawing the proposed rule, along with a second, early-stage rulemaking to force airlines to disclose more information about their revenue from fees charged for extra services, because the rules would have been "of limited public benefit."
