Consumerist alerts us to the news that the Department of Transportation has fined Delta $100,000 for telling passengers that its liability on lost luggage was capped at very low rates -- well below what the DOT specifically requires. The law says that airlines cannot limit liability to anything lower than $3,300 per passenger. So what did Delta do? It gave passengers notices saying that liability was limited to $125. Turns out, that's a no-no. Of course, I'd rather that the airline spend the money on not losing luggage, but perhaps that's just wishful thinking...
