Yup. Pretty simple shit.If we bail the airlines out, I hope we force conditions on them and eliminate some of their BS (such as shrinking seats). Now may be a good time for that passengers bill of rights....
Seats Required Width
Seats Required Length (inbetween seats)
Bathroom Required Size
Defined reasonable dollar cost to change your flight if desired (e.g. $25 instead of the current $200+)
Define what can/can't be charged a fee. For instance, I'm of the mindset that every airline should allow 2 checked bags for free under a certain weight.
The problem is that seats are already fucking small as shit, so unless you want to mandate that every airline go back and change ALL their planes (won't happen) you're shit out of luck.
All of this is wishful thinking though, governments will bend over and say "Yes sir, can I please have it deeper?" as they bail them out with no thought to check them for all their fuckups.
