CAPBOR Brings 'Strand-In' To The Steps Of Congress

Will Hold Multi-Media Experience On National Mall

As ANN first reported during our September 6 ANN Special Feature Aero-Cast, passengers from across the country who have been victims of strand-in situations at the hands of commercial airlines will stage a simulated strand-in situation on the National Mall on Wednesday, September 19 to bring attention to passengers' rights legislation.

Members of the Coalition for an Airline Passengers' Bill of Rights (CAPBOR) will be joined by students and members of Congress who support the need for Congressional action on behalf of airline passengers are gathering to make their voices heard against the continuing inhumane treatment of airline passengers.

CAPBOR is urging Congress to ensure the FAA Reauthorization Bills (H.R. 2881 and S. 1300) require airlines to establish a maximum tarmac delay period and to have the US Secretary of Transportation (DOT) enforce them. According to DOT, the contingency plans currently offered by the airlines are not enforceable.

Kate Hanni, Founder and Executive Director of CAPBOR will be joined by Coalition member-organizations Public Interest Research Group (US PIRG), former commercial airline pilots, former jet engineers and airline industry employees.

Hanni tells ANN the event will include a full multi-media experience... "that will open your eyes to what it's like to be stranded!"

We wonder if that will also include Smell-O-Vision... actually, we hope not...
