We were pleased to see the announcement on October 19, 2016, that the Department would open a Request for Information (RFI) to better understand airline industry practices that restrict airline flight schedule, fare, and availability information. The RFI followed reports of behavior on the part of several major airlines attempting to deny consumers transparent access to publicly available flight and schedule information. We understand that the RFI was withdrawn in order to give the new administration time to review the issue, we hope that after its review the Department will quickly act.
