Association for Airline Passenger Rights Questions the Transparency of
the Transparent Airfares Act of 2014 (H.R.4156); Legislation
would weaken long-overdue passenger protections enacted by DOT
WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 22, 2014) -- The Association for Airline Passenger
Rights, (AAPR) today called on the U.S. Congress to slow down
on its consideration of the Transparent Airfares Act of 2014
(H.R.4156) because it represents a significant step backwards. The legislation,
which is characterized by advocates, consumer rights groups and passengers
as secretive, would dilute full-fare advertising protections afforded to
airline passengers two years ago by the U.S. Department of Transportation
