Proposed law re @united, part 1: Airlines _must_ call for volunteers. No more "involuntary". No exceptions. They overbooked; they pay.

.@united Proposed law, part 2: Airlines must pay volunteer in clear rebooking+cash or clear cancellation+cash. No more deceptively labeled vouchers.

.@united Proposed law, part 3: Airlines must pay $100/hour to each delayed passenger. Delay is measured by when door is opened at the destination.

.@united Part 3 is important because otherwise airlines have too much incentive to drag out the volunteering process for hours. Who wants $1?... $2?

.@united Finally, name passenger-rights law after the poor guy beaten up by @united, in the hope that the airlines never forget why the law exists.
