We were pleasantly surprised yesterday to hear Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Chair of the Senate Commerce Committee's Aviation Subcommittee, make the same arguments ASTA has been making for years on the need to streamline travel agents' disclosure burden. In response to a question on airline fees at a Washington Post event featuring aviation policymakers from Congress and the Administration, the Senator said "I don't think some of the proposals are reasonable, where if you're dealing with a travel agent they'd have to read everything that is possibly available to know about that flight." (See full transcript here, and video here starting at the 6:45 mark.) We've met with Senator Blunt's office several times over the past few years, including with our Missouri group during Legislative Day on May 8, and appreciate the support!
