After getting diverted to Denver this past weekend, all I can say is "hear hear!"
After getting diverted to Denver last weekend when I was supposed to be flying to Pierre, I don't have a bit of sympathy for the airlines - and I'm glad to see what can only be divine convergence in Senator John Thune's announcement of legislation forcing airlines to post their performance on delays and other problems:
Sen. John Thune says he wants to do something about the inconveniences and annoyances sometimes experienced by airline travelers. Thune has introduced legislation in Congress to give travelers more information about airline problems.Read it all here in the Rapid City Journal.
His legislation would make airlines publish their performance statistics — such as the percentage of on-time departures and delays for each passenger flight.
