New Air Passenger Protections in Effect

New rules from the Department of Transportation give airline passengers more rights. The new rules require that:

  • If you’re involuntarily bumped from a flight, you can receive twice as much compensation as before.
  • Airlines must refund your baggage fees if they lose your luggage.
  • Tarmac delays at small airports must be limited to three hours, and delays of international flights at U.S. airports must be limited to four hours.
  • Airlines must post all optional fees, including baggage, meal, and change fees, on their websites.
