    Feds delay rules on airline pricing, advertising:confused:

    The airline industry has received a reprieve on complying with major new federal pricing and advertising rules, but this has not mollified Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel Co., which stridently objects to the rules.

    The U.S. Department of Transportation announced the new policy on April 20, but decided Thursday to delay implementing key pieces until Jan. 24. Almost all of the changes were to kick in on Aug. 23, while the requirement that an advertised fare include all government taxes and fees instead of the longstanding practice of keeping them separate carried an Oct. 24 deadline.
