In this chapter, the word "regulation" is omitted in restating

the phrase "classifications, rules, regulations, and practices"

because it is covered by the word "rules" and to distinguish the

rules of an air carrier or foreign air carrier from the regulations

of the United States Government. The word "reasonable" is

substituted for "just and reasonable" and "just, reasonable, and

equitable" for consistency in the revised title and to eliminate

unnecessary words. See the revision notes following 49:10101. The

word "prices" is substituted for "fares" and "rates, fares, and

charges" because of the definition of "price" in section 40102(a)

of the revised title.

In this section, before clause (1), the words "comply with" are

substituted for "observe" for consistency in the revised title and

with other titles of the United States Code. In clause (1), the

the words "unreasonably discriminating" are substituted for "unduly

carrier subject to subtitle IV of this title, the participating

carriers shall establish -

(1) reasonable prices and reasonable classifications, rules,

and practices affecting those prices or the value of the

transportation provided under those prices; and

(2) for joint prices established for the through service,

reasonable divisions of those joint prices among the

participating carriers.

(c) Statements Included in Tariffs. - An air carrier and a

carrier subject to subtitle IV of this title that are participating

in through service and joint prices shall include in their tariffs,

filed with the Secretary of Transportation, a statement showing the

through service and joint prices.

-HEAD-

Sec. 41504. Tariffs for foreign air transportation

-STATUTE-

(a) Filing and Contents. - In the way prescribed by regulation by

the Secretary of Transportation, every air carrier and foreign air

carrier shall file with the Secretary, publish, and keep open to

public inspection, tariffs showing the prices for the foreign air

transportation provided between places served by the carrier and

provided between places served by the carrier and places served by

another air carrier or foreign air carrier with which through

service and joint prices have been established. A tariff -

(1) shall contain -

(A) to the extent the Secretary requires by regulation, a

description of the classifications, rules, and practices

related to the foreign air transportation;

(B) a statement of the prices in money of the United States;

and

(C) other information the Secretary requires by regulation;

and

(2) may contain -

(A) a statement of the prices in money that is not money of

the United States; and

(B) information that is required under the laws of a foreign

country in or to which the air carrier or foreign air carrier

is authorized to operate.

(b) Changes. - (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) of this

subsection, an air carrier or foreign air carrier may change a

price or a classification, rule, or practice affecting that price

or the value of the transportation provided under that price,

specified in a tariff of the carrier for foreign air transportation

only after 30 days after the carrier has filed, published, and

posted notice of the proposed change in the same way as required

for a tariff under subsection (a) of this section. However, the

Secretary may prescribe an alternative notice requirement, of at

least 25 days, to allow an air carrier or foreign air carrier to

match a proposed change in a passenger fare or a charge of another

air carrier or foreign air carrier. A notice under this paragraph

must state plainly the change proposed and when the change will

take effect.

(2) If the effect of a proposed change would be to begin a

passenger fare that is outside of, or not covered by, the range of

passenger fares specified under section 41509(e)(2) and (3) of this

title, the proposed change may be put into effect only on the

expiration of 60 days after the notice is filed under regulations

prescribed by the Secretary.

(c) Rejection of Changes. - The Secretary may reject a tariff or

tariff change that is not consistent with this section and

regulations prescribed by the Secretary. A tariff or change that is

rejected is void.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

In this section, the words "foreign air transportation" are

substituted for "air transportation" because 49 App.:1551(a)(4)(B)

provides that 49 App.:1373 no longer applies to interstate or

overseas air transportation and 49 App.:1376(a)-(e), restated in

section 41901 of the revised title, governs rates for the

transportation of mail by aircraft. See section 40102(a) of the

revised title defining "air transportation" to mean interstate or

foreign air transportation or the transportation of mail by

aircraft. The words "passenger fare" are substituted for "fare" for

consistency in the revised title.

In subsection (a), before clause (1), the word "print" is omitted

as being included in "publish". The word "places" is substituted

for "points" for consistency in the revised title and with other

titles of the United States Code. In clause (1)(A), the word

"services" is omitted as being included in "practices". In clauses

(1)(B) and (2)(A), the word "lawful" is omitted as surplus.

In subsection (b)(1), the words "for foreign air transportation"

are added because of 49 App.:1551(a)(4)(B). See the revision notes

for subsection (a) of this section. The words "in the same way as

required for a tariff under" are substituted for "in accordance

with" for clarity. The words "proposed change in a passenger fare

or a charge of another air carrier or foreign air carrier" are

substituted for "fares or charges specified in another air

carrier's or foreign air carrier's proposed tariff" for clarity and

consistency in this section.

In subsection (b)(2), the words "not covered by" are substituted

for "to which such range of fares does not apply" to eliminate

unnecessary words. The words "subparagraphs (A) and (B) of section

1482(d)(4) of this Appendix . . . section 1482(d)(7) of this

Appendix" are omitted because those sections related to interstate

and overseas air transportation and the source provisions restated

in this section relate to foreign air transportation. In addition,

the text of 49 App.:1551(a)(5)(D) provides that 49 App.:1482(d)

ceased to be in effect on January 1, 1985, except as related to

foreign air transportation. The reference in the source provisions

to "section 1482(j)(9) of this Appendix" has been restated as

though it were a reference to 49 App.:1482(j)(10) to correct an

apparent error in the International Air Transportation Competition

Act of 1979 (Public Law 96-192, 94 Stat. 35). Section 24(b) of S.

1300 of the 96th Congress (the derivative source for the

International Air Transportation Competition Act of 1979), as

originally passed by both the Senate and the House of

Representatives, restated section 403(c)(2) of the Federal Aviation

Act of 1958 (Public Law 85-726, 72 Stat. 759) to read as it now

does with a cross-reference to section 1002(j)(9) of the Federal

Aviation Act of 1958. Also contained in those versions of S. 1300

in section 24(a) was an amendment to section 1002(j) of the Federal

Aviation Act of 1958 to add a paragraph (9) that contained language

identical to what is now section 1002(j)(10) of the Federal

Aviation Act of 1958. When S. 1300 was reported by the conference

committee and enacted into law as the International Air

Transportation Competition Act of 1979, section 24(a) had been

changed so that a different paragraph (9) was added and what had

been paragraph (9) was now designated as a new paragraph (10) to be

added. Apparently, when the conference committee redesignated

section 1002(j)(9) as 1002(j)(10) it did not make a corresponding

change in the cross-reference in section 403(c)(2). See 125 Cong.

Rec. 26936, 32147, 36939.

Sec. 41505. Uniform methods for establishing joint prices, and

-STATUTE-

(a) Definition. - In this section, "commuter air carrier" means

an air carrier providing transportation under section 40109(f) of

this title that provides at least 5 scheduled roundtrips a week

between the same 2 places.

(b) General. - Except as provided in subsection (c) of this

section, when the Secretary of Transportation prescribes under

section 41508 or 41509 of this title a uniform method generally

applicable to establishing joint prices and divisions of joint

prices for and between air carriers holding certificates issued

under section 41102 of this title, the Secretary shall make that

uniform method apply to establishing joint prices and divisions of

joint prices for and between air carriers and commuter air

carriers.

(c) Notice Required Before Modifying, Suspending, or Ending

Transportation. - A commuter air carrier that has an agreement with

an air carrier to provide transportation for passengers and

property that includes through service by the commuter air carrier

over the commuter air carrier's routes and air transportation

provided by the air carrier shall give the air carrier and the

Secretary at least 90 days' notice before modifying, suspending, or

ending the transportation. If the commuter air carrier does not

give that notice, the uniform method of establishing joint prices

and divisions of joint prices referred to in subsection (b) of this

section does not apply to the commuter air carrier.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

In subsection (a), the text of 49 App.:1482a(2)(A) is omitted as

unnecessary because the definition of "air carrier" in 49

App.:1301(3) is restated in section 40102(a) of the revised title

and applies to this section and because the functions of the Civil

Aeronautics Board under 49 App.:1482a were transferred to the

Secretary of Transportation by 49 App.:1551(b)(1)(E) and the

complete name of the Secretary is used the first time the term

appears in a section. The text of 49 App.:1482a(3) is omitted as

executed. The reference in the source provisions to "section

416(b)(3) of the Federal Aviation Act of 1958 [49 App. U.S.C.

1386(b)(3)]" has been restated as though it were a reference to

section 416(b)(4) to correct an apparent error in the Airline

Deregulation Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-504, 92 Stat. 1705).

Section 24 of H.R. 12611 of the 95th Congress (the derivative

source for 416(b)(4)), added section 416(b)(3) to the Federal

Aviation Act. Section 29(c) added provisions that eventually were

classified as 49 App.:1482a. Those provisions contained a reference

to section 416(b)(3). When S. 2493 (passed in lieu of the House

bill after being amended to contain much of the text of the House

bill) was reported by the conference committee and enacted into

law, section 32 added what had been a new 416(b)(3) as a new

416(b)(4). However, the conference committee did not make a

corresponding change in the cross-reference in section 37(c), that

added 49 App.:1482a. See 124 Cong. Rec. 30714, 30716, 36521, 36524.

The word "scheduled" is substituted for "pursuant to flight

schedules" to eliminate unnecessary words. The words "the same 2

places" are substituted for "one pair of points" for consistency in

the revised title and with other titles of the United States Code.

In subsection (b), the words "Except as provided in subsection

(c) of this section" are added for clarity. The words "pursuant to

its authority" are omitted as surplus.

In subsection (c), the word "passengers" is substituted for

"persons" for consistency in the revised title and with other

titles of the Code. The words "through service by the commuter air

carrier over the commuter air carrier's routes" are substituted for

"transportation over its routes" for clarity. The words "between

air carriers and commuter air carriers" are omitted as surplus.

CHAPTER 415 - PRICING

-HEAD-

Sec. 41509. Authority of the Secretary of Transportation to

suspend, cancel, and reject tariffs for foreign air

transportation

-STATUTE-

(a) Cancellation and Rejection. - (1) On the initiative of the

Secretary of Transportation or on a complaint filed with the

Secretary, the Secretary may conduct a hearing to decide whether a

price for foreign air transportation contained in an existing or

newly filed tariff of an air carrier or foreign air carrier, a

classification, rule, or practice affecting that price, or the

value of the transportation provided under that price, is lawful.

The Secretary may begin the hearing at once and without an answer

or another formal pleading by the air carrier or foreign air

carrier, but only after reasonable notice. If, after the hearing,

the Secretary decides that the price, classification, rule, or

practice is or will be unreasonable or unreasonably discriminatory,

the Secretary may cancel or reject the tariff and prevent the use

of the price, classification, rule, or practice.

(2) With or without a hearing, the Secretary may cancel or reject

an existing or newly filed tariff of a foreign air carrier and

prevent the use of a price, classification, rule, or practice when

the Secretary decides that the cancellation or rejection is in the

public interest.

(3) In deciding whether to cancel or reject a tariff of an air

carrier or foreign air carrier under this subsection, the Secretary

shall consider -

(A) the effect of the price on the movement of traffic;

(B) the need in the public interest of adequate and efficient

transportation by air carriers and foreign air carriers at the

lowest cost consistent with providing the transportation;

(C) the standards prescribed under law related to the character

and quality of transportation to be provided by air carriers and

foreign air carriers;

(D) the inherent advantages of transportation by aircraft;

(E) the need of the air carrier and foreign air carrier for

revenue sufficient to enable the air carrier and foreign air

carrier, under honest, economical, and efficient management, to

provide adequate and efficient air carrier and foreign air

carrier transportation;

(F) whether the price will be predatory or tend to monopolize

competition among air carriers and foreign air carriers in

foreign air transportation;

(G) reasonably estimated or foreseeable future costs and

revenues for the air carrier or foreign air carrier for a

reasonably limited future period during which the price would be

in effect; and

(H) other factors.

(b) Suspension. - (1)(A) Pending a decision under subsection

(a)(1) of this section, the Secretary may suspend a tariff and the

use of a price contained in the tariff or a classification, rule,

or practice affecting that price.

(B) The Secretary may suspend a tariff of a foreign air carrier

and the use of a price, classification, rule, or practice when the

suspension is in the public interest.

(2) A suspension becomes effective when the Secretary files with

the tariff and delivers to the air carrier or foreign air carrier

affected by the suspension a written statement of the reasons for

the suspension. To suspend a tariff, reasonable notice of the

suspension must be given to the affected carrier.

(3) The suspension of a newly filed tariff may be for periods

totaling not more than 365 days after the date the tariff otherwise

would go into effect. The suspension of an existing tariff may be

for periods totaling not more than 365 days after the effective

date of the suspension. The Secretary may rescind at any time the

suspension of a newly filed tariff and allow the price,

classification, rule, or practice to go into effect.

(c) Effective Tariffs and Prices When Tariff Is Suspended,

Canceled, or Rejected. - (1) If a tariff is suspended pending the

outcome of a proceeding under subsection (a) of this section and

the Secretary does not take final action in the proceeding during

the suspension period, the tariff goes into effect at the end of

that period subject to cancellation when the proceeding is

concluded.

(2)(A) During the period of suspension, or after the cancellation

or rejection, of a newly filed tariff (including a tariff that has

gone into effect provisionally), the affected air carrier or

foreign air carrier shall maintain in effect and use -

(i) the corresponding seasonal prices, or the classifications,

rules, and practices affecting those prices or the value of

transportation provided under those prices, that were in effect

for the carrier immediately before the new tariff was filed; or

(ii) another price provided for under an applicable

intergovernmental agreement or understanding.

(B) If the suspended, canceled, or rejected tariff is the first

tariff of the carrier for the covered transportation, the carrier,

for the purpose of operations during the period of suspension or

pending effectiveness of a new tariff, may file another tariff

containing a price or another classification, rule, or practice

affecting the price, or the value of the transportation provided

under the price, that is in effect (and not subject to a suspension

order) for any air carrier providing the same transportation.

(3) If an existing tariff is suspended or canceled, the affected

air carrier or foreign air carrier, for the purpose of operations

during the period of suspension or pending effectiveness of a new

tariff, may file another tariff containing a price or another

classification, rule, or practice affecting the price, or the value

of the transportation provided under the price, that is in effect

(and not subject to a suspension order) for any air carrier

providing the same transportation.

(d) Response to Refusal of Foreign Country To Allow Air Carrier

To Charge a Price. - When the Secretary finds that the government

or an aeronautical authority of a foreign country has refused to

allow an air carrier to charge a price contained in a tariff filed

and published under section 41504 of this title for foreign air

transportation to the foreign country -

(1) the Secretary, without a hearing -

(A) may suspend any existing tariff of a foreign air carrier

providing transportation between the United States and the

foreign country for periods totaling not more than 365 days

after the date of the suspension; and

(B) may order the foreign air carrier to charge, during the

suspension periods, prices that are the same as those contained

in a tariff (designated by the Secretary) of an air carrier

filed and published under section 41504 of this title for

foreign air transportation to the foreign country; and

(2) a foreign air carrier may continue to provide foreign air

transportation to the foreign country only if the government or

aeronautical authority of the foreign country allows an air

carrier to start or continue foreign air transportation to the

foreign country at the prices designated by the Secretary.

(e) Standard Foreign Fare Level. - (1)(A) In this subsection,

"standard foreign fare level" means -

(i) for a class of fares existing on October 1, 1979, the fare

between 2 places (as adjusted under subparagraph (B) of this

paragraph) filed for and allowed by the Civil Aeronautics Board

to go into effect after September 30, 1979, and before August 13,

1980 (with seasonal fares adjusted by the percentage difference

that prevailed between seasons in 1978), or the fare established

under section 1002(j)(8) of the Federal Aviation Act of 1958

(Public Law 85-726, 72 Stat. 731), as added by section 24(a) of

the International Air Transportation Competition Act of 1979

(Public Law 96-192, 94 Stat. 46); or

(ii) for a class of fares established after October 1, 1979,

the fare between 2 places in effect on the effective date of the

establishment of the new class.

(B) At least once every 60 days for fuel costs, and at least once

every 180 days for other costs, the Secretary shall adjust the

standard foreign fare level for the particular foreign air

transportation to which the standard foreign fare level applies by

increasing or decreasing that level by the percentage change from

the last previous period in the actual operating cost for each

available seat-mile. In adjusting a standard foreign fare level,

the Secretary may not make an adjustment to costs actually

incurred. In establishing a standard foreign fare level and making

adjustments in the level under this paragraph, the Secretary may

use all relevant or appropriate information reasonably available to

the Secretary.

(2) The Secretary may not decide that a proposed fare for foreign

air transportation is unreasonable on the basis that the fare is

too low or too high if the proposed fare is neither more than 5

percent higher nor 50 percent lower than the standard foreign fare

level for the same or essentially similar class of transportation.

The Secretary by regulation may increase the 50 percent specified

in this paragraph.

(3) Paragraph (2) of this subsection does not apply to a proposed

fare that is not more than -

(A) 5 percent higher than the standard foreign fare level when

the Secretary decides that the proposed fare may be unreasonably

discriminatory or that suspension of the fare is in the public

interest because of an unreasonable regulatory action by the

government of a foreign country that is related to a fare

proposal of an air carrier; or

(B) 50 percent lower than the standard foreign fare level when

the Secretary decides that the proposed fare may be predatory or

discriminatory or that suspension of the fare is required because

of an unreasonable regulatory action by the government of a

foreign country that is related to a fare proposal of an air

carrier.

(f) Submission of Orders to President. - The Secretary shall

submit to the President an order made under this section

suspending, canceling, or rejecting a price for foreign air

transportation, and an order rescinding the effectiveness of such

an order, before publishing the order. Not later than 10 days after

its submission, the President may disapprove the order on finding

disapproval is necessary for United States foreign policy or

national defense reasons.

(g) Compliance as Condition of Certificate or Permit. - This

section and compliance with an order of the Secretary under this

section are conditions to any certificate or permit held by an air

carrier or foreign air carrier. An air carrier or foreign air

carrier may provide foreign air transportation only as long as the

carrier maintains prices for that transportation that comply with

this section and orders of the Secretary under this section.

App.:1482(g) does not relate to foreign air transportation and 49

App.:1551(a)(5)(D) provides that 49 App.:1482(g) ceased to be in

effect on January 1, 1985, except insofar as it related to foreign

air transportation. Reference to 49 App.:1482(j) is omitted because

it consistently has been interpreted that the minimum notice

requirement does not apply to foreign air transportation.

In subsection (b)(3), the words "for periods totaling not more

than 365 days after" are substituted for "a period or periods not

exceeding 365 days in the aggregate beyond the time when" and "a

period or periods not exceeding 365 days in the aggregate from" to

In subsection (c)(1), the words "a tariff is suspended pending

made within the period of suspension or suspensions" and "the

proceeding has not been concluded within the period of suspension

or suspensions" to eliminate unnecessary words. The words "or if

the Board shall otherwise so direct" are omitted as surplus because

under subsection (b)(3) of this section the Secretary may rescind a

suspension at any time.

In subsection (c)(2)(A), before clause (i), the words "or

suspensions" are omitted because of 1:1. In clause (i), the words

cancellation of an existing tariff" are omitted as surplus.

In subsection (d), the word "properly" is omitted as surplus. In

clause (1)(A), the words "the operation of" are omitted as surplus.

The words "periods totaling not more than 365 days after the date

of the suspension" are substituted for "for a period or periods not

exceeding three hundred and sixty-five days in the aggregate from

the date of such suspension" for clarity and to eliminate

unnecessary words. In subclause (B), the words "or suspensions" are

omitted because of 1:1. In clause (2), the words "by the Secretary"

increase filed with the Board after the 180th day after February

15, 1980" and "with respect to any proposed decrease filed after

February 15, 1980" are omitted as obsolete. The words "of persons"

are omitted as surplus because a "fare" is only for passengers. The

words "The Secretary by regulation may increase the 50 percent

specified in this paragraph" are substituted for 49

App.:1482(j)(10) for clarity.

In subsection (e)(3)(A), the words "unreasonably discriminatory"

are substituted for "unduly preferential, unduly prejudicial, or

unjustly discriminatory" to eliminate unnecessary words and for

consistency in the revised title. See the revision notes following

49:10101.

In subsection (g), the words "express" and "now . . . or

hereafter issued" are omitted as surplus. The words "may provide

foreign air transportation only as long as" are substituted for

--------------------------------------------------------------------

In this section, the words "greater or less" are omitted as being

included in "different". The words "foreign air transportation" are

substituted for "air transportation" because 49 App.:1551(a)(4)(B)

provides that 49 App.:1373 no longer applies to interstate or

overseas air transportation and 49 App.:1376(a)-(e), restated in

section 41901 of the revised title, governs prices for the

transportation of mail by aircraft. See section 40102(a) of the

revised title defining "air transportation" to mean interstate or

foreign air transportation or the transportation of mail by

aircraft. The words "for any service in connection therewith" are

omitted as surplus because the word "transportation" includes any

services related to the transportation.

In subsection (a), before clause (1), the words "may not" are

substituted for "no . . . shall" and "no . . . shall, in any manner

or by any device, directly or indirectly, or through any agent or

broker, or otherwise" for clarity and to eliminate unnecessary

words. In clause (1), the words "demand or collect" are omitted as

being included in "charge or receive". The words "then currently"

are omitted as surplus. In clause (3), the words "tariff for

foreign air transportation" are substituted for "such tariffs" for

clarity.

In subsection (b), before clause (1), the words "shipper,

consignor, consignee, forwarder, broker, or other . . . or any

director, officer, agent, or employee thereof" are omitted as

surplus. In clause (1), the words "directly or indirectly, by any

device or means" and "currently" are omitted as surplus. In clause

(2), before subclause (A), the words "in any manner or by any

device, directly or indirectly, through any agent or broker, or

otherwise" are omitted as surplus. In subclause (B), the word

"favor" is omitted as surplus.

In this section, the words "foreign air transportation" are

substituted for "transportation" and "in the case of overseas or

foreign air transportation" because 49 App.:1551(a)(4)(B) provides

that 49 App.:1373 no longer applies to interstate or overseas air

transportation and 49 App.:1376(a)-(e), restated in section 41901

of the revised title, governs rates for the transportation of mail

by aircraft. See section 40102(a) of the revised title defining

"air transportation" to mean interstate or foreign air

transportation or the transportation of mail by aircraft. The word

"conditions" is omitted as being included in "terms".

In subsection (a)(7), the words "or other emergency" are

substituted for "other calamitous visitation" for consistency.

In subsection (b)(2), the words "no longer gainfully employed"

are substituted for "retired" and "For purposes of this subsection,

the term 'retired' means no longer gainfully employed as defined by

the Board" to eliminate unnecessary words.

In subsection (b)(4), the words "an individual who has severely

impaired vision or hearing or another physical or mental handicap"

are substituted for "handicapped person" and "For the purposes of

this subsection, the term 'handicapped person' means any person who

has severely impaired vision or hearing, and any other physically

or mentally handicapped person, as defined by the Board" to

eliminate unnecessary words.
