There’s 60 days for the public to comment on all the new ideas, so if you’re really upset, you can always chime in. You can even take it way too far and call up your friendly member of Congress, because we’re sure they have nothing better to do.
Besides the threat to our nation’s favorite airline snack, there were some ideas that are actually kind of decent. They’re thinking about giving you even more cash—like up to $1,300—if you’re bumped from your flight. Also, there might be a way to cancel or change reservations within 24 hours without a penalty or other fees.

So just order an extra bag of peanuts while you can, because the clock is ticking.
