Passenger Rights

The events of American Airlines flight 1348 late December (when in bad weather passengers were kept in the aircraft on the ground for 9 hours) has led to a renewed call for improved passenger rights. A glance at the blog of Coalition for Stranded Airline Passenger's Bill of Rights suggests they are asking for more rights than those provided to passengers of EU airlines under their regulations.

Many passengers would not have been aware of the delay notice. I feel that airlines should be compelled to list the compensation due, under the regulations, on the Delay Notice. And it should be a requirement for all airlines to be proactive in distributing Delay Notices to ALL passengers and not just those who have requested one. The Air Travel Advisory Bureau provide important advice and guidance on air travel,APD, flight status, cheap tickets and air travel deals.
