Airline ticket prices not so cheap

DALLAS, TX (WFLX)- Cheap airline fares may not look so cheap later this month,  But you'll be able to see what you're really paying.

New consumer protection rules are forcing airlines to be more upfront with prices.

At the end of January,  advertised fares will have to show all government taxes and other fees that are currently hidden.

Knowing the full price upfront will give you the chance to more easily compare prices between airlines.

Airlines must also include fees for checking bags and give customers 24 hours to change a reservation with no rebooking fee.
