Senator Schumer Puts Pressure on Airlines Over Fees for Lost Baggage

New York Senator Chuck Schumer is getting tough with airlines over the issue of baggage fees for misplaced luggage.


The Democrat says he plans to introduce legislation that would force a change in policy if airlines do not agree to voluntarily refund passengers who have been inconvenienced by lost or misplaced baggage.


New rules from the Department of Transportation state that airlines must refund passengers whose luggage has been deemed lost forever, however, the new rules do not cover luggage that is only temporarily lost.


Therefore, Schumer argues, the average travelers is likely to never see a refund unless new policies are enacted.
