Ruden believes the airlines should be required by the Transportation Department to sell the products through GDSs. He thinks one of the options in the DOT’s proposed rulemaking on “Transparency of Airline Ancillary Fees and Other Consumer Protection Issues” doesn’t go far enough because it only would require airlines to provide fee information to the GDSs. (Another proposal would exclude GDSs from the requirement altogether.) Davidson doesn’t think the airlines should be forced to enable ancillary sales in GDSs – they should do it because it’s just nuts not to. “If I’m going to spend hundreds of millions on extra legroom, why would I make it unavailable to half my customers?” he said.
