Today’s Action: Tell transportation Secretary Pete Buttigeg to put the airlines in their place!

Anyone who’s been to an airport recently knows what an absolute mess American air transportation is these days. Thanks to a shortage of pilots, air traffic control issues, and general staffing issues post-COVID, airlines are scrambling to staff flights, leading to tens of thousands of cancellations.

This isn’t a surprise to the airlines. Flights are scheduled months in advance, meaning that these airlines knew they didn’t have the people to staff them, but they accepted people’s money anyway and then left them out in the cold when the time came for them to travel. To make matters worse, in 2021 they refused to refund a staggering $10 billion dollars to American travelers who had their flights canceled.

Secretary Pete Buttigeg announced the conclusion of investigations into a few unnamed airlines who canceled flights and failed to give refunds to passengers, but there is still no information on whether or not passengers will receive their refunds at all. 

Email the Department of Transportation and demand Secretary Pete Buttigeg fight to get airline passengers their refunds!

Enough is enough. During the pandemic, the airline companies got a $54 billion bailout from the US taxpayer, and they proceeded to lay off 56,000 people anyway. Those people never got replaced, and now the US traveler who paid for the airline bailouts is getting ripped off and abused by these monopolistic behemoths. 

Despite knowing that their teams are not performing at pre-pandemic level and that they are lacking in staff, airlines continue to knowingly oversell their capacity at the expense of American families. Secretary Buttigeg promises that enforcement action will come in the following weeks, but we need to know that full refunds for slighted passengers will be included in that action — and that these exploitative, greedy business practices will come to an immediate end.

Email the Department of Transportation and call for a speedy resolution!
