His English.....


Curious as I priced out a US PNR on WF, and it priced less with $600. Should I issue it? Risk an ADM? Will he answer me on that?

They probably got a bunch of calls/chats saying "How come I don't see this cheap fare,  I saw it on Dansdeals.com" etc.

Websites see 'referrer URL' - what site everyone clicked through from. He probably saw a ton of traffic from DDMS.

Thats a big NO NO. Fill out the DOT's form. Once you have a confirmed ticket and its ticketed they have to honor it, they are not allowed to cancel a ticket a make you buy a new one at a higher price.

But do the rules apply to them?

If the flight touches US Soil then yes. They are required to honor all US DOT Laws.

It's so good to hear that but how is Wideroe under the DOT's jurisdiction?
Why would Wideroe care what the DOT tells them?
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?

Might not necessarily fall with Wideroe but with US Airways as they cancelled a ticketed confirmation. Any they are required to honor it according to DOT. So technically this can go back to US Airways, not even Wideroe

And Wideroe still tickets other airlines to the USA and if they potentially want to keep that they will need to honor DOT laws for flights that touches US soil.
