DailyDirt: People Are Stupid, So They Don't Question Sky Law...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

If you're traveling for the upcoming holidays, you might think that a "passenger bill of rights" is supposed to have kicked in already, so you don't have to worry about being stuck on a plane sitting on the runway for more than 4 hours. That probably won't happen, but if the weather is bad, be prepared to have your flight canceled instead. Here are just a few interesting links on airline operations. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Gotta love the unintended consequences

    Canceling flights doesn't sound like a bad call to make. if there's a chance that my flight is going to be delayed for 4hrs, I wanna know and airlines are usually pretty bad about giving passengers definite answers. This way, at least fliers will get a definite answer and be able to arrange for other means of transportation, if possible.
