ACTA Files Comments With Competition Bureau On LH Fee
ACTA says it has
filed comments with Canada’s Competition Bureau on the Lufthansa Group
Distribution Cost Charge that goes into effect tomorrow.
says the filing of comments was followed by discussions with the Competition
Bureau but as investigations by that organization are considered confidential,
“ACTA has no further information to report on this topic at the current time.”
ACTA did indicate
that it is not pleased with the new fee.
“It is unfortunate
that the DCC adds another hidden cost passed on to the consumer in the form of
a Non Commissionable Fee (NCF) or surcharge that will require to be collected
and explained to your clients. As more items continue to get thrown into this
‘line’ it makes fare transparency and comparison shopping more difficult.”
