The major US airlines have over the past decade continued to raise the cost of tickets and prices via ancillary fees that they have charged with no push back from any governmental or regulatory agency. They have collected bag fees, change fees, seat fees, and other fees unabated and have told customers that if you don't like it, drive to your destination. US Airlines have raked in over 100 Billion dollars in the last 10 years alone. Congress is already looking at this problem with the Forbidding Airlines from Imposing Ridiculous — or FAIR — Fees Act. 

We should support this act by requiring airlines to revoke their fees for 5 years if they accept ANY federal bailouts. Also, the airlines should be required to sell 40% of their shares if they had any stock buybacks in the last 5 years. Executive pay should also be trimmed by 40% if any money is accepted in any form from the taxpayers. 

Covid-19 was an unexpected problem that all Americans have to face and in a free market economy, the airlines should face the same market forces that forced passengers to accept the ancillary fees gouging the flying public. Jetblue raised their bag fee a few weeks ago and is now asking for a bailout. 

Please contact your elected official to support this bill but more importantly let's tell the airlines NO to outrageous FEES!!
