As a subcommittee, the Task Force will report its recommendations to the ACPAC for deliberation and not provide its recommendations directly to the Department. The Task Force’s report of its findings and recommendations to the ACPAC will be released to the public. Dated: November 8, 2018. Steven G. Bradbury, General Counsel. ACPAC Administrative Matters; Upcoming Meeting; and Topics The first meeting of the reestablished ACPAC will take place at the Department’s headquarters in Washington, DC on January 16, 2019. During the first meeting, the Department will announce the members of the Task Force and there will be a discussion of the duties of the Task Force members. In addition, two other topics—the transparency of airline ancillary service fees and involuntary changes to itineraries—will be discussed. The Joint Explanatory Statement of the 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act requests that the Department work in collaboration with industry, consumers and other stakeholders to establish guidelines on transparency of airline ancillary fees. In addition, the 2018 FAA Act mandates that the Department review and make recommendations with regard to air carriers’ handling of involuntary changes to passengers’ travel itineraries, and that the Department may consult with the Committee for this purpose. Accordingly, the Committee will discuss these issues during the meeting. The Department’s Office of Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings, within the Office of the General Counsel, will provide appropriate funding, logistics, administrative, and technical support for the Committee. The Department’s subject matter experts will also provide support to the Committee.
