Airplane baby seats and the FAA

In the article "Despite Pressure, FAA Won't Require Airplane Baby Seats," Oct. 15, the author fails to mention how airlines would be forced to absorb the cost of such regulation. There are two possible consequences if Congress passes new legislation. One, the airlines would be forced to raise the price of tickets to all passengers to absorb the loss that they would incur; or two, airlines would be forced to make cuts in safety inspections.

When infants fly, it should be the parents' responsibility to pay the bill, not other passengers' or the airlines'. Government regulation - where does it end? Allen Young, Sheffield, Ala.
