Current airline regulation refunds passengers if their bags are lost.
A new proposal wants to refund passengers if their flight does not have internet access or if their bags are excessively delayed.
The Transportation Dept will propose airlines refund fees on checked baggage if the bags are not delivered to passengers within 12 hours of landing in the U.S
25 hours for International flights.
If a passenger pays for internet access and the flight does not have it or there is an outage on the flight the proposal states passengers get reimbursed for the additional fee.
If the proposal passes the changes could take effect by next Summer.
