About this Order
This consent order concerns violations by Pacific Delight Tours, Inc. (Pacific Delight), of the requirements of the Department’s full fare advertising rule, 14 CFR 399.84. Pacific Delight failed to include fuel surcharges, where applicable, in air tour prices it listed in a number of print advertisements and on its website and failed to provide adequate disclosure of additional charges and fees, such as taxes and other fees that may be listed separately. These omissions, moreover, violated 49 U.S.C. § 41712, the statutory provision prohibiting unfair and deceptive trade practices and unfair methods of competition. This order directs Pacific Delight and its affiliated companies to cease and desist from future similar violations and assesses $20,000 in compromise civil penalties.
