Choice spokeswoman Stefanie Menzies told WA Today Australian airlines are ‘flying below the radar’ on consumer protection. 

‘Compensation should be fair and standardised, no matter what airline you’re on or what the customer service agent decides you deserve on the day,’ she told the publication. 

‘Airlines should take responsibility for their own mistakes instead of making passengers pay for a delay.’
