President Joe Biden on Monday is expected to announce a new proposed rule that would allow fliers to see the total cost of an airline ticket, including extra fees, before they click on "purchase." Under the proposed rule, airlines and travel search websites would have to disclose fees upfront -- the first time the airfare is displayed -- charges associated with baggage, sitting with your child, and changing or cancelling your flight. The announcement is part of a larger effort from the White House to help lower prices for consumers as record high inflation continues.
