Airlines May Be Forced To Disclose More About Baggage, Reservation Fees

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Airlines may soon have to disclose more about the fees they charge travelers.

The Transportation Department is proposing new rules that would require carriers to disclose the fees they charge passengers in detail.

It would also require airlines to give more statistics about lost or damaged luggage so customers can better decide which carriers to avoid.

Last year, airlines make $5.5 billion from baggage and reservation change fees.
