Moves to limit overbooking could raise ticket prices

first_imgPhoto: Delta. Governments have been warned that any move to regulate overbooking practices on airlines could raise ticket prices.The International Air Transport Association warned that lawmakers and regulators should not get caught up in the “groundswell of outrage” following the forced removal of 69-year-old Dr David Dao from a United Express flight so staff could take his seat.IATA director general Alexandre de Juniac said everyone, including United, agreed there was no justification for what happened to Dao and the airline’s chief executive had repeatedly apologised.“The video was so shocking that it would be easy for lawmakers and regulators to get caught up in this groundswell of outrage and take steps to limit overselling of flights,’’ de Juniac said. “However, the management of overbooking has actually worked well for decades.“It ensures that scarce capacity is efficiently utilized; we see that in today’s record load factors. Overbooking helps airlines avoid empty seats, and that helps to keep costs—and fares—low.“Governments have acknowledged that this ultimately benefits consumers. “De Juniac said any industry level change should involve transparent fact-based dialogue between industry and regulators.“We must be careful to not risk undoing the many benefits unleashed by the competitive forces of deregulation,”  he said.The comments come as legislators in the US are threatening to introduce bills addressing issues such as overbooking and airline earlier this week faced a congressional committee looking at passenger rights. A number of US carriers, including United,  have pledged to address the issue voluntarily.The increased focus has also seen a spate of media and social media reports about passengers claiming they are being mistreated by airlines.The latest of these saw Delta Air Lines apologise to a Californian family after they were removed from a plane in Hawaii after they refused to give up a seat they had bought for a son was not travelling with them but was occupied by his two-year-old brother.The family claimed a flight attendant told them the mother faced jail and their children would be taken from them unless they gave up the seat.They disembarked from the redeye service to Los Angeles and were forced to find a hotel and book another flight the next day at a cost of $US2000.“We are sorry for the unfortunate experience our customers had with Delta, and we’ve reached out to them to refund their travel and provide additional compensation,’’ the airline said.last_img read more

At practice Monday, Malone had a heart-to-heart with his squad. He asked them what they wanted to achieve as they march toward their first postseason appearance since 2012-13 — simply settle for getting in or challenge for the top seed. At 28-6, the Nuggets have the best home record in the Western Conference.“I didn’t give them a chance (to answer),” Malone said. “I said I’m tired of talking. All we do is talk, talk, talk — let’s start doing.”Malone’s message was taken to heart.“We need to just get back to playing together, screening for each other, playing for each other, passing,” Jokic said. “Just to play for someone else.”TIP-INSTimberwolves: PG Tyus Jones had 16 points.Nuggets: G Torrey Craig hurt his left arm while blocking a shot with 14 seconds remaining. … The starters for the Nuggets were a combined plus-78.

They are 5-4 since the All-Star break.“We’re focused on the bigger picture right now,” Plumlee said. “There’s a chance to do something special.”Karl-Anthony Towns had 34 points and 10 rebounds to pace a Timberwolves team that’s fading from playoff contention. Towns did a little bit of everything to keep the Timberwolves close until Denver pulled away in the third quarter. He had one play where he quickly applied the brakes to shake free from Jokic and then stepped back to hit a long jumper. Towns grinned on his way back down the floor.“In boxing, Mike Tyson said, ‘Everybody has a game plan until they get punched in the face,’” said Towns, who was back after missing a game with knee inflammation. “When we punched them in the face, they stuck to their game plan. We got punched in the face, we started getting erratic, started speeding ourselves up.”Minnesota was light on guards with Derrick Rose (right elbow), Jeff Teague (left foot) and Andrew Wiggins (left quadriceps) all sidelined. The depleted guard situation meant more court time for Cameron Reynolds, a rookie out of Tulane who recently signed a second 10-day contract. He had 12 points in 25 minutes.ADVERTISEMENT Bad day for No. 1s: Novak Djokovic, Naomi Osaka upset at Indian Wells View commentslast_img read more
