US Airways fined $40,000 by the US DoT
March 08, 2010

US Airways was fined $40,000 by the US Dept. of Transportation "for violating rules that require airline price advertisements to disclose the full price consumers must pay for air transportation." DOT said its Aviation Enforcement Office found that US listed fares on its website "that did not include additional applicable taxes and fees, or any notice on that page that these additional charges would be required," on certain lists generated by customer searches for one-way flights. The agency reiterated that either the entire fare must be indicated on the first page listing price quotes or "the existence of additional government-imposed per-passenger charges must be prominently disclosed along with a hyperlink that takes consumers to a page that describes the additional charges."
