Jason Allyn started this petition to American Airlines and

Commercial air travel has been decimated and many people will be afraid to travel in the future. Our aerospace industry is essential for our national interests and US congress has provided financial assistance during times of crisis. Unfortunately, commercial carriers have unintentionally made the health of air passengers less safe in the past two decades through their additional fees & restrictions on ticket changes.

The addition of change fees and reduced flexibility in adjusting travel times creates an unintended consequence of sick passengers flying because they do not want to incur the cost of flight changes. Hotels do not impose this restriction or financial penalty. For the future of air travel, people need to be confident that they are not traveling with sick passengers. Unless the airlines act on their own, I would like a law that restricts commercial carriers from charging fees when someone delays travel. With overbooking already in full effect, the risk to the airline is minimal.

This change could protect passengers who have been taken advantage of by the industry that our congress continues to assist. And it will also reduce the spread of all infectious diseases. In a perfect world, all sick passengers would be banned from commercial air travel. But as long as people risk losing money, they will be hesitant to miss their flight.

Thanks for your consideration.
