It’s expected to be the busiest Labor Day travel weekend in three years, Fox Weather reports.

On Thursday, the Department of Transportation said it had launched the airline’s customer service dashboard, prompting “significant changes” of all but one of the 10 largest US carriers.

“Passengers have the right to transparency and clarity about what to expect from an airline when there is a cancellation or disruption,” the Transport Sec. Pete Buttigieg said in a statement. “This dashboard collects that information in one place so travelers can easily understand their rights, compare airline practices and make informed decisions.”
