New airline legislation introduced

Senator Richard Blumenthal has introduced The Airline Passengers’ Bill of Rights that defines and expands the rights provided to passengers and ensures tougher oversight of the airline industry. The bill proposes to prohibit airlines from forcing passengers to surrender seats involuntarily while limiting the use of police. It requires airlines to refund tickets as well as compensate travellers for excessive delays and cancellations.
