Audit Initiated of DOT's Oversight of Long, On-Board Flight Delays
The Office of Inspector General plans to initiate an audit on long, onboard airline flight delays. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 requires our office to assess the impact of flight delays and cancellations on air travelers. Accordingly, we plan to review the Department of Transportation’s oversight of airlines' and airports' compliance with contingency plans and other requirements relating to long, on-board flight delays.
