BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

In the spirit of cheap travel, lawsuit advances


Spirit Airlines Inc. passengers can sue the airline for charging carry-on baggage fees that can surpass the cost of their low-cost ticket price bought through such websites as Cheapair, Expedia, Priceline and Travelocity, CNBC reported Tuesday.

Specifically, a federal appeals court in New York said 22 passengers could sue for breach of contract because there was no evidence Spirit notified them about the fees when they booked their trips and that there were “ambiguities” in the prices they would pay, according to the news report.

Miramar, Florida-based Spirit is accused of relying on “ancillary fees,” such as checked and carry-on baggage fees and fees to choose seats, to make money after offering lower fares. It has not commented on the suit.

The plaintiffs claim the airline knew that its online travel agents hid such “gotcha” bag fees that travelers would eventually have to pay at the airport, according to the news report.
