Download as PDF 73966 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 239 / Wednesday, December 14, 2005 / Proposed Rules Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Department has determined that the requirements of Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 do not apply to this rulemaking. Dated: Issued this Day of December 5, 2005, at Washington, DC, Under Authority Delegated by 49 CFR 1.56a. Michael W. Reynolds, Acting Assistant Secretary for Aviation and International Affairs. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 399 Administrative practice and procedure, Air carriers, Air rates and fares, Air taxis, Consumer protection, Small businesses. For the reasons set forth in the preamble, the Department proposes to amend 14 CFR part 399 as follows: PART 399—STATEMENTS OF GENERAL POLICY 1. The authority citation for part 399 continues to read as follows: 49 U.S.C. 40101 et seq. Subpart G—Policies Relating to Enforcement Option I 2. Section 399.84 would be revised to read as follows: § 399.84 Price Advertising. (a) Total Price Requirement. (1) Except as specified in paragraph (a)(2) of this section, the Department considers any advertising or solicitation by an air carrier, a foreign air carrier, or a ticket agent for passenger air transportation, a tour (i.e., a combination of air transportation and ground accommodations), or a tour component (i.e., a hotel stay) that states a price for such air transportation, tour, or tour component to be an unfair or deceptive practice, unless the price stated is the entire price to be paid by the customer to the air carrier, foreign air carrier, or ticket agent, for such air transportation, tour, or tour component. (2) Government-imposed taxes and fees that the carrier collects on a perperson basis may be excluded from the advertised airfare, provided that they are not ad valorem in nature, and provided that the advertising or solicitation shows the existence and amount of these charges clearly so that consumers can easily determine the entire price to be paid. An indication of the existence of the taxes and fees listed separately must be situated close to the advertised fare, and the information provided must be easily readable. (i) If an advertisement lists multiple destinations that do not all entail the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:28 Dec 13, 2005 Jkt 208001 same government-imposed taxes and fees, the advertisement may state a maximum sum of these charges, a sum for each destination, or a range of sums. Also, the word ‘‘approximately’’ or a range of sums may be used to account for minor currency-exchange fluctuations. (ii) In Internet fare advertisements, including not only Web sites but also banner, pop-up, and e-mail advertisements, the per-person government taxes and fees that may be listed separately may be noted by a prominent hyperlink, proximate to the listed fare, that takes the viewer to a display showing the nature and amount of these charges. (iii) In any billboard advertisement that breaks out taxes and fees, a sum of these charges must be legible to drivers passing the billboard at the posted speed limit. (iv) In television advertisements, the sum of any taxes and fees that are broken out must be disclosed. It must either be presented on screen so that it can be read (i.e., in sufficiently large print and for a sufficient amount of time) or be disclosed audially. (v) Radio advertisements must include the sum of any taxes and fees that are broken out. (b) Advertising ‘‘two-for-one’’ fares is an unfair or deceptive practice if the fare that must be purchased to take advantage of the promotion is higher than the carrier’s other fares in the same market, unless this fact is prominently and clearly disclosed. (c) Advertising ‘‘each-way’’ fares that are available only when bought for round-trip travel is an unfair or deceptive practice unless the round-trip purchase requirement is disclosed clearly and conspicuously. Specifically, the disclosure must be prominent and proximate to the advertised fares. A banner or pop-up Internet advertisement of an ‘‘each-way’’ fare that is only available with a round-trip purchase must disclose this fact in the advertisement itself. (d) Advertising ‘‘free’’ air transportation in conjunction with the purchase of one or more other tickets is an unfair or deceptive practice unless restrictions, fees, and other conditions that apply to the ‘‘free’’ transportation are disclosed prominently and proximate to the offer, at a minimum through an asterisk or other symbol directing the reader’s attention to the information elsewhere in the advertisement. The information must be presented in easily readable print or audially. This requirement applies to advertisements in all media: the PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Internet, billboards, television, radio, and print media. (e) Advertising fares that are higher if purchased through one or more media (e.g., by telephone or in person) than through another (e.g., over the Internet) is an unfair or deceptive practice unless the advertisement prominently discloses that the stated fares are only available through the one medium and that tickets cost more than the advertised price if purchased through other media. The advertisement may state a price differential but may not characterize this amount as a ‘‘service fee.’’ Option II 3. Section 399.84 would be revised to read as follows: § 399.84 Price disclosure. The Department considers the sale of air transportation to be an unfair or deceptive practice unless the total price of the transportation is disclosed to the consumer before the consumer makes the purchase. Option III 4. Section 399.84 would be revised to read as follows: § 399.84 Price disclosure and price advertising. (a) The Department considers the sale of air transportation to be an unfair or deceptive practice unless the total price of the transportation is disclosed to the consumer before the consumer makes the purchase. (b) The Department considers any advertising by an air carrier, foreign air carrier, or ticket agent that states a price for air transportation to be an unfair or deceptive practice unless the advertisement sets forth all price components for such air transportation so that the consumer can determine the entire price to be paid. Option IV 5. Section 399.84 would be removed.
