  • TSA improperly denied grant to American, court finds
    The Transportation Security Administration improperly rejected American Airlines' request for reimbursement for a baggage security system at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport, according to a federal appeals court. The panel of judges found the TSA acted "arbitrarily and capriciously" when it rejected American's application for a $30 million grant, and it urged the TSA to reconsider its decision.

  • Airlines request year's delay for new DOT rules
    Several airlines have requested that the Department of Transportation give them one year to install the technology required to implement two of the agency's new rules regarding fees. One rule involves detailed disclosure on fees per itinerary, including the factors that may affect policies regarding baggage.
