The websites of European airlines under control

Doesn't it make you nervous to book a plane ticket online and see how suddenly you have added a few euros without eating or drinking it? And what about those offers of free tickets or 0.1 euros that in the end do not even come out? This occurs on the websites of a few airlines, including Ryanair, where a server is tired of removing insurance and other things that come by default. If you go fast, you get nailed. That easy.

Well, as I read in Reuters, the European Union, through an investigation carried out by the regulator of consumer affairs, could close the pages of airlines that show misleading prices and other anomalies.

According to this investigation, more than 50 percent of the websites of airlines show irregularities in relation to rates as well as contract terms.

The European Union plans to contact the companies to put the clear prices on their pages. If they do not rectify in four months they could reach legal actions, fines and even the closure of their web pages.

For now, no names have come out but the Commission will publish a list of all the airlines that do not comply with European regulations.

A good initiative of the European Union. Hopefully companies try not to go over lists and be more honest with their promotions and, ultimately, with their customers.
