  • Passenger Bill of Rights Law overturned

    NEW YORK (AP) -- A federal appeals court has rejected a law requiring airlines to provide food, water, clean toilets and fresh air to passengers trapped in a plane delayed on the ground.
    The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that New York's new state law interferes with federal law governing the price, route or service of an air carrier. It was the first law in the nation of its kind.
    The appeals court said the new law was laudable but only the federal government has the authority to enact such a regulation.
    The law was challenged before the appeals court by the Air Transport Association of America, the industry trade group representing leading U.S. airlines.

      Sucks. But it seems a pretty clear reading of the law. Unfortunately, teh fed will never likely get their heads out of their Cusamanos long enough to make a federal law.
