US rejects delay request from global airlines on bag fee transparency

New rules are slated to go into effect January 24 requiring airlines departing from or landing in the US to disclose carry-on and first and second bag allowances and fees on e-ticket confirmations.

The US Department of Transportation rejected a request from US and foreign airlines to delay new disclosure requirements about bag fees, but there will be few enforcement actions as they relate to interline itineraries or code-shares for six months.

 
This means that starting January 24, passengers should start receiving new information and links about bag fees in their e-ticket confirmation emails.
 
New rules are slated to go into effect January 24 requiring airlines departing from or landing in the US to disclose carry-on and first and second bag allowances and fees on e-ticket confirmations. In addition, bag allowances and fees in place at the beginning of the trip must apply throughout the itinerary for flights starting or ending in the US.
