The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT’s) Advisory Committee on Accessible Transportation (ACCESS Advisory Committee) was established to negotiate and develop a proposed rule concerning accommodations for air travelers with disabilities. The rule addresses three issues. One of them, regarding in-flight entertainment, specifically benefits those with hearing loss. (The other two pertain to accessible lavatories on new single-aisle aircraft and service animals.) On November 22, the ACCESS Advisory Committee – of which HLAA is a member – voted on and approved the proposals.
