Airlines see stricter penalties under Obama


Fines imposed against U.S. airlines are sky rocketing under the Obama administration as the Department of Transportation steps up its regulatory enforcement.


The DOT has nearly doubled fines on the airline industry under the Obama administration in comparison with the last two years of Bush’s presidency, federal data shows.


Fines related to safety have also increased, rising 66% year-over-year. The severe enforcements have gathered fans and critics.


Some say the new approach could discourage airlines from self-reporting serious problems, while others say the new attitude can protect consumers and force airlines to stay on top of safety procedures.
