About this Order
This consent order concerns the display of inaccurate and misleading information on the US Airways website regarding fares for infants traveling on a parent’s lap (“lap infants”).

This order directs the carrier to cease and desist from similar conduct in the future and assesses a compromise civil penalty of $100,000 under 49 U.S.C. § 46301.
