This direct final rule amends the time period for uploading flight performance information to an air carrier’s Web site from anytime between the 20th and 23rd day of the month to the fourth Saturday of the month. The intended effect of this rule is to provide regulatory relief to industry by allowing carriers to follow standard industry practice of updating flight information
such as schedule changes on Saturday.
This action is necessary to address difficulties concerning implementation and compliance with the requirement to post flight delay data on carriers’ Web sites.
