Sen. Schumer demands airlines reverse flight change fees

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) - New York Sen. Charles Schumer is urging airlines to reverse flight change fee increases.
    
The Democrat said Sunday that the additional charge makes it difficult for families on fixed budgets.
    
Four major airlines - Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, U.S. Airways and United Arilines - recently increased fees on ticket changes from $150 to $200.
    
He said most families plan their trips in advance and get non-refundable tickets to save money. But he said plans can change due to sick children or work demands.
    
He said "I am asking, really demanding" that the four airlines "put the brakes on these out-of-control changes of flight fees."
