Orbitz fined $50,000 for failing to clearly disclose baggage fees

Jump to last reply

USDOT fined Orbitz because the customers were forced to scroll to the bottom of the web page to see the cost of checking their baggage. This was deemed a violation of the recent mandate (January 2012) for carriers and ticket agents to disclose up-front ("clearly lay out and accesible") any baggage fees passengers may have to pay in addition to the ticket price.

Boy, DOT is not &^^$% around!! ORBITZ (same company owners for Cruise Critic/ Expedia/ Travelocity/ CheapTickets) is also been investigated on the use of detection of computer interface procedence and using that information to profile the inquirer and, accordingly, route them towards pricier hotels/flights.

WOW!
