Passengers May Soon Be Able To Sue For Flight Delays

The Wall Street Journal (1/13, Phillips) reports, “Passengers may be able to sue airlines for breach of contract if flights are delayed too long on the tarmac, according to rules proposed by the Department of Transportation.” If the rules are adopted, they “would require airlines to develop contingency plans for lengthy tarmac delays — including time limits for such delays” and “those contingency plans and limits would become part of each airline’s contract of carriage, a legally binding agreement that outlines an airline’s responsibilities to passengers.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
