I'm quite afraid in individual self serving actions by other airlines (Delta sic) trying to soothe their public and to set themselves aside.

What is needed is clarity from the government of passenger rights and means of enforcement.

I don't wish to water down the necessity for the Captain to maintain a safe flight condition, but maybe for other cases fines against either party might be adjudicated in a calmer situation.
There is no need for the Feds to involved and might make things much worse. Delta leading the way in the right direction for themselves and the industry. Congress is very likely to make a hash of it--no overbooking at all, water down the cabotage rules, create fines in addition to the cash to the customer deal.
