    Please join us to learn about the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of Aviation Consumer Protection and its enforcement efforts on a range of issues, including flight and tarmac delays, cancellations, refunds, advertising and fare displays (including codeshare disclosure), and lost or delayed baggage, as well as its enforcement stance related to airline policies and practices as a result of the COVID-19 health pandemic. The panel will also discuss the ongoing rulemaking regarding the DOT’s unfair and deceptive practices statute, 49 U.S.C. §41712, and whether the DOT should define “unfairness” and “deception” in its statute by adopting the principles articulated in the FTC’s and Federal court precedent.
