Re Petition to stay the effectiveness of wheelchair seat-strapping provision

The Petition

In July 2009, the U.S. Department of Transportation (Department) committed to conducting a rulemaking to determine whether or not the prohibition against using the seat-strapping method to transport a passenger’s manual folding wheelchair in the cabin of an aircraft as set forth in section 382.123(c)1 should be deleted, modified, or remain as written. By petition filed April 8, 2010, Jet Blue requests that the Department immediately stay the effectiveness of 14 CFR 382.672 and 14 CFR 382.123(c) or not enforce those sections for new aircraft delivered while the Department completes this rulemaking.
