Airline must post all fees online starting on January 26
Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) —
Starting January 26, all airlines will have to disclose not just the price for a flight, and any taxes and other fees too, which also includes suitcase fees.
Baton Rouge traveler Albert Daniel thinks it’s a great start.
"I think it's a good idea because a lot of times you get to the airport and end up with all these additional fees and out of pocket expenses,” stated Daniel. “If you’re on a business account, it’s one thing, but if it’s coming out of your pocket, it may mean something different to you."
Another big change is coming that same day; if you buy a non-refundable ticket, you can actually hold that reservation for 24 hours without having to pay for it.
