This contest is fueled by the following news: U.S. Department of Transportation has investigated major U.S. airlines and concluded that they are not fulfilling their promises to their customers. The inspector general has identified five major areas where airlines did fail to live up to their promises to consumer and issued the recommendations to airlines. However, the office has no legal enforcement options outside of court, so these recommendations remain just friendly recommendations for now. In 1999, after Congress introduced "air travelers' bill or rights", major U.S. air carriers voluntarily agreed to adopt "consumer service commitments", which show in detail what airlines owe to consumers in various situations. The recent inspection by the U.S. Department of Transportation revealed that airlines were not living up to those commitments. Standards set in 1999 call for informing consumers about delays and cancellations at least once per twenty minutes, but the study conducted at seventeen national airports revealed that announcements about delayed flights and cancelled flights were beyond the 20 minutes time frame in over forty percent of cases. Furthermore, the provided information was not adequate in some forty five percent of test cases. These figures show that airlines service level is not satisfactory and hardly acceptable to their consumers. Besides the untimely information about delayed flights and flight cancellations, major US airlines are not fulfilling consumer expectations of frequent-flier programs. While airlines make it relatively easy to collect frequent flier points for consumers, they do not provide adequate information on redemptions and specific conditions on those collected air miles. Most on the times airlines lawyers lay out the conditions in a fine print, and make it so that consumers have no legal rights and have very few opportunities to use their air miles.
