It's from the Amtrak derailment in May.
Five airlines are being questioned by the federal government
for raising prices after an Amtrak train derailed in May, leaving eight dead
and 200 others injured. Consumerist reported that the U. S.
Department of Transportation wrote to JetBlue, Southwest, Delta, United and
American Airlines on Friday asking about price information from the Northeast
area affected by the derailment. "The idea that any business would seek
to take advantage of stranded rail passengers in the wake of such a tragic
event is unacceptable," U. S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in
a statement. "This Department takes all allegations of airline
price-gouging seriously, and we will pursue a thorough investigation of these
consumer complaints. " Because of the crash, Amtrak service in the
Northeast was stopped for a few days. The Department of Transportation is
probing the airlines for airfare prices from April 28 to May 26, 2015.
Connecticut Senator Christopher, along with consumers, complained about the
prices to the government. "We are cooperating with the DOT and are
confident that there will be no finding of wrongdoing by American,"
according to an American airline representative to USA Today. This
