PracticalNomadFrom Ed Hasbrouk, The Practical Nomad: “Today I filed formal objections to U.S. Department of of Transportation’s tentative decision to approve a proposal from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to replace publicly-disclosed tariffs of airfares with “personalized” airline ticket prices…. For example, DOT proposes to require airline to “offer” tickets to anonymous customers. But airlines would be allowed to make that offer, and the price of anonymity, as high as they like.”

Read the rest of Ed’s post here.  And respond here: “Go to Regulations.gov to tell DOT that you oppose “IATA Resolution 787” and endorse my objections. You can submit comments to DOT through Wednesday, 11 June 2014.”

    This is a terrible idea, another step in codifying a privileged upper class and leaving the majority of people not only out of the loop, but in the dark. Do not do this!
