A “dashboard” that the Transportation Department is implementing will allow passengers to quickly see which airlines provide accessible group seating for families with young children.
The department is working on laws to stop families from being split up on airlines when the decision was made, announced on Monday.
It’s the newest shot in the Biden administration’s campaign to eliminate “junk fees” and pressure airlines to enhance their offerings.
The dashboard awards airlines with a green check if an adult family member can sit adjacent to young children and seats are available.
Only three of the ten American airlines listed on the website earned a green check on Monday: Alaska, American, and Frontier.
Links to each airline’s family-seating policy are also available on the website.
