Transportation Department issues airline fines

The Transportation Department has fined Delta Air Lines $375,000 for failing to follow proper procedures in bumping passengers from oversold flights in early 2008. Delta said in a federal filing it has been "working consistently over the past year and a half to improve compliance" with DOT rules. Regulators also fined United Airlines $80,000 for failing to disclose that partner carriers were operating some flights. United traced the problem to a programming error and said it has "taken steps to ensure our continued compliance."
