Expect to see fewer airline delays after the 29th of April

As of the end of April, airlines who don’t allow passengers off of planes after three hours of delay could be fined $27,500 per passenger or about $4 million for a fully loaded Boeing 737.

American Airlines, Jetblue and Delta have all asked for exemptions. Why is that guys? Is it because you know that you will have delays, but don’t want to face the stiff penalties?

The way I see it, either one of two things will happen. Either the airlines will get their act together and we will experience fewer delays, or they’ll raise their ticket prices astronomically.

I don’t know who would pay over $28,000 for a ticket though. Now maybe if they got rid of the pretzels, served some real food, started handing out pillows, took out a few seats to make more room and make us feel less like sardines, we might consider it.

Then again, maybe not.
