When the Department amended the applicability section, 14 CFR 382.7, of its ACAA regulation on the transport of service animals, it inadvertently failed to instruct the Federal Register to retain the example scenario that followed the regulatory text in 14 CFR 382.7(c). This document corrects this error by reinstating the example after the amended regulatory text in 14 CFR 382.7(c).

Example 1 to paragraph (c): A passenger buys a ticket from a U.S. carrier for a journey from New York to Prague. The ticket carries the U.S. carrier's code and flight number throughout the entire journey. There is a change of carrier and aircraft in Frankfurt, and a foreign carrier operates the Frankfurt-Prague segment. The foreign carrier is not subject to the provisions of Part 382 for the Frankfurt-Prague segment. However, the U.S. carrier must ensure compliance with the applicable provisions of Part 382 on the Frankfurt-Prague segment with respect to passengers flying under its code, and the Department could take enforcement action against the U.S. carrier for acts or omissions by the foreign carrier.
