In order to establish a clearer flight safety regulation rules, Taiwan's Consumer Protection association (Government controlled) has FINALLY decided that effective December 2002, timetables/flight schedules from airlineshave to show the plane information for the planned flight.

The plane information will include the age of the aircraft planned to fly, the age of the fleet type, the oldest fleet type, type of the aircraft.

For example: If China Airlines shows that a 744 is flying CI006 to Los Angeles, China Airlines will have to show the registration of the 744 that's planned to operate this flight, plus the over-all fleet age of 744, and the age of the oldest 744.

The association will also ask CAA to update the punctuality of every airline, major accident information, incident information.

They claims this will help consumers to decide which plane they're expected to fly.

The conclusion was made during the meeting involving CI611 crash, due to people's doubt on "elderly" jet.

The association also asked airlines SHOULD NOT bargain with the victims for the compensation.

How can an airline publish registrations for a flight in a timetable? It would almost certainly have changed by the time the flight goes anyway.

Taiwanese public are not very well informed about the airline industry. Only they can come up with such a naive request/rule. IIRC, about seven or eight years ago, it was quite popular in Taiwan for passengers to protest airline delays by refusing to disembark and demand for compensation. To make matter worse, their national airline, China Airlines, is run by a bunch of people who don't know how to run an airline.

Well said.

The main problem is that what if the airline decided to switch aircraft?
