I love what Vaughn Jennings, a spokesman for Airlines for America, replies:

“The fact that a record number of people are flying underscores that customers are benefiting every day from affordable fares and the ability to choose among carriers, amenities and service options that best meet their needs,”

It's not even a valid reply to proposed regulation. Anyone who's interested in a positive customer experience would immediately say "great idea, easy to do". Unless of course you're trying to trick people into believing they are getting a great fare, only to later find out that the bag fees are not competitive (aka "rip off").

Well now we can blame everything on Trump - and in 2 years he'll be able to do nothing as well.

The president of North Korea has the power to do that. The president of Cuba has the power to do that. The president of Venezuela has the power to do that. The president of ISIS has the power to do that.

Do you really want any U.S. president to have that much power? I know I don't!
