Difster Was Right

In my last post I said:
This is a situation which can easily be dealt with in the free market. Just based on this incident, the airlines are going to start falling all over themselves coming up with their own Bill of Rights. Hopefully this will obviate the need for Congress to act and we can forget the whole mess.

JetBlue has just announced their own Passenger Bill of Rights.

Good for them. I didn't know if they would be the first to do this, but I knew it wouldn't take too long for someone to do it.

The provisions of their program look pretty good. Let's just wait and see what their competition is going to do. It's a race against the clock for these companies to come up with something also.

Even though the companies took action on their own, Congress may still try to intervene and put minimum Federal standards in place. Hopefully this issue has now lost momentum.
