Transparency is good - but how about looking at the limitations on cabin baggage - 7Kg for all airlines in Australia - the bag nearly weighs nearly that - put in a toothbrush and you are overweight -if you go somewhere overnight you should be able to only need to travel with cabin baggage. 10 Kg would be a big more realistic.

I love what Vaughn Jennings, a spokesman for Airlines for America, replies:

“The fact that a record number of people are flying underscores that customers are benefiting every day from affordable fares and the ability to choose among carriers, amenities and service options that best meet their needs,”

It's not even a valid reply to proposed regulation. Anyone who's interested in a positive customer experience would immediately say "great idea, easy to do". Unless of course you're trying to trick people into believing they are getting a great fare, only to later find out that the bag fees are not competitive (aka "rip off").

The president of North Korea has the power to do that. The president of Cuba has the power to do that. The president of Venezuela has the power to do that. The president of ISIS has the power to do that.

Do you really want any U.S. president to have that much power? I know I don't!
