New 'bill of rights' issued for air travelers
The U.S. Department of Transportation has issued an updated set of rules, known as the "passengers bill of rights," for air travelers.
Among the new rights is mandatory posting of possible extra fees charged by the airline for things such as baggage, meals and other amenities.
Airlines will also now be required to refund baggage fees if they lose a passenger's bag.
For passengers on overbooked flights, they will now be entitled to twice the price of the ticket.
The new rights go into effect in 120 days.
