If you're sick of paying extra fees during your night flight, there may be relief in sight.
Senators Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Ed Markey of Massachusetts introduced a bill this week that would curb the fees that can be charged. "Forbidding Airlines from Imposing Ridiculous (FAIR) Fees Act," would allow the Department of Transportation to have greater power to limit airline fee increases.
"With the dramatic reduction in competition in the airline industry, it's left airlines more free to dramatically increase the fees," Markey told CNBC's "Power Lunch". "The airlines have more freedom to engage in price increases that don't reflect market forces," he added.
The bill, if signed into law, would stop airlines from charging fees that are considered "unreasonable or disproportional to the costs."
