Passenger carrying air carriers are mandated to comply with this regulation and, thus, this information collection, which requires passenger carrying air carriers to make available on their Web sites the width of the widest passenger seat in each class of service for each make, model, and series of airplane used in passenger-carrying operations. This information helps to facilitate the use of child restraint systems (CRS) onboard airplanes by providing greater information to caregivers to help them determine whether a particular CRS will fit in an airplane seat. Affected air carriers initially provided information on their Web sites in order to comply with the regulation. After initial implementation, the only times air carriers need to update their Web sites are on occasion that a new airplane make, model, or series is introduced to its fleet, or when the narrowest or widest seat in a class of service in a currently listed make, model, or series of airplane is replaced with a narrower or wider seat. Failure to update a Web site when an air carrier adds a new aircraft make, model, or series to its fleet or replaces an existing aircraft’s seats with a different model would result in non-compliance with the regulatory information disclosure requirements. Failure to review the accuracy of the information on an annual basis could result in the air carrier’s display of incorrect seat dimension information.

Many of the old charts related to this original collection were taken out as they do not pertain now that this rule is in effect. Also, the numbers of carriers was updated with current numbers. The wages were updated to the 2021 wage rates found on the Bureau of Labor Statistics webpage. The collection is divided into 3 groups: new collections, verification of existing data, and updates to existing data due to revised equipment.
