FAA Rules Apply To Flights Outside The US?

Mon Mar 05, 2001 4:47 am

Do FAA rules for airlines and flights apply when a flight is departing from/arriving to somewhere outside of the U.S.? For example, there is a rule stating that if a flight is cancelled due to reasons other than those that are weather-related, the airline must pay for accomodations. Now, say if a flight on American Airlines that is departing from Tokyo is canceled due to a mechanical, would AA have to pay for passengers to stay in a hotel until the next flight next day?

The rules apply to where the plane is registered. So if it is a US planes it isunder FAA regs. This is why I was able to jumpseat on the Virgin 340 out of LAX.

Actually the FAA has no rules on accomidations for passengers during mechanical or weather delays. Most airlines do this to keep up a good image
