DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AE32 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Accessible In-Flight Entertainment 

This rulemaking follows up on an air travel accessibility issue discussed in the preamble of the 2008 Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) final rule on whether carriers should be required to ensure that the same in-flight entertainment available to all passengers is accessible to passengers with disabilities. In 2016, a DOT negotiated rulemaking committee reached consensus on both in-flight entertainment and accessible lavatories. The topic of accessible lavatories on single-aisle aircraft was removed from RIN 2105-AE12 and will be addressed in a new rulemaking action under RIN 2105-AE88 and RIN 2105-AE89. The topic of service animals was removed from RIN 2105-AE12 and will be addressed in a new rulemaking action under RIN 2105-AE63.
