USA: third attempt to introduce Air Passenger Bill of Rights
Rep. Congressman Mike Thompson, D-California, announced to introduce an "Air Passenger Bill of Rights of 2011" which would require all airlines to provide water, food, working toilets, ventilation and the option for passengers to deplane if there is an extended delay. The bill would not be limited to domestic flights but also apply to all carriers flying in or out of the country, including non-U.S.-based airlines. This is the third time Thompson has introduced this legislation. The previous two bills failed to get off the ground.
