Newest DOT Passenger Protection Regulations Go Into Effect

The most recent passenger protection regulations, announced earlier this year (covered in an April 20 blog post), are now in effect (DOT press release available here). Notably the DOT has extended the so-called "tarmac delay rules" to international flights by foreign carriers operating at U.S. airports. With the next few months likely to be dominated by discussion of the EU's (legal or aeropolitical) ability to sweep foreign carriers into its carbon emissions trading scheme, the U.S. will need to be prepared to distinguish these latest unilaterally-imposed regulations from any (legal or aeropolitical) objections it makes to the EU scheme.
