Comair forced to pay fines

Comair must now pay $275,000 in fines because the government says the airline didn't follow regulations on bumping passengers from overbooked flights.

This is the result of an investigation in response to consumer complaints against the airline, which is owned by Delta. The transportation department says Comair did not seek volunteers to leave overbooked flights and did not pay bumped passengers the compensation they were entitled to, both of which violate federal rules.
