But the courts will take care of this particular guy.
I'd like to see new rules in place, I just don't know that an executive order gets us there in a way we'd like later on. It's one thing to tell executive agencies to change immigration policy. It's another for a sitting executive to issue rules of behavior to private corporations without playing by the rules of the enabling statute passed by Congress.

Think about it, we all saw the penalty for refusal which means you DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE which means the Airline can offer as little as they want or do whatever they want because YOU DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE.
Frankly, who cares about a voucher, that would be nearly useless to me, and I am sure to many others.
I paid cash to get on the plane and if you want my seat you should have to pay me more cash to get off the plane.

Make it simple, you want my seat, it is $1000 cash at a minimum. Problem Solved.
But nope, we have massive Corporate Greed at work here and the bottom line is innocent citizens will be abused and abused until some higher authority steps in.
Apr 12, 17, 12:03 PM #27It should be:
1st Class ticket on the next flight out
All lodging and meal expenses during wait time
Full Refund of ticket price

No. Some attorney will make United's wallet a lot lighter. That will be sufficient motivation to rectify the situation.

Say your grandmother falls, breaks her hip and has to have surgery. But, she's 89 and doctors aren't sure she'll survive it. You're 1500 miles away, but can get a direct flight that will get you in town before surgery starts. You okay being bumped?
Or say your son, who's in the Marines, gets emergency orders for him to be deployed to Syria. He leaves in the next 24 hours. You're on vacation in Colorado, but can catch a flight in before he leaves. You still okay being bumped?
I'm going to say the majority of people are going to say that no amount of money is worth it...and that should be their priority. And if you say no, those situations should be allowed, then what I'm hearing is that some people's reason for wanting to stay on the flight is more important that others. But, for someone who wants to get back in time for their son's Little League game the next day, that may be the most important thing for them...and who are we to argue?
Maybe the other three people who got up and left didn't have anything that important for them to contest it. This guy obviously felt he did.
