The US government has ordered six airlines to pay more than $600 million to passengers

The US Department of Transportation has ordered six airlines to pay more than $600 million in passenger refunds over canceled or changed flights after travelers sought redress for failing to get their money back.

Authorities have received a “flood of complaints from air travelers” since the start of the pandemic, over a lack of timely refunds from companies, the department said in a statement released on Monday.

The airlines hit were American low-cost carrier Frontier, as well as foreign carriers Air India, TAP Portugal, Aeromexico, El Al, and Avianca. “A flight cancellation is frustrating enough, and you shouldn’t also have to haggle or wait months to get your refund,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
