Trump Ends Obama’s Airline Baggage Fees Disclosure Rule, Hidden Fees Are Coming Back

President Donald Trump’s Department of Transportation has ended President Obama’s fees disclosure rule for airlines.

Airlines will no longer have to tell passengers about hidden baggage fees as soon as people start the ticket-buying process, notes The Hill.

The Department of Transportation claims that banning hidden fees has “limited public benefit” even though the rule provided transparency for airline consumers and saved them money.

By an amazing coincidence, Delta Airlines started charging basic economy passengers baggage fees on Dec. 6.

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut tweeted in response:
