US Airways volunteers refunds to passengers

In the news (see article), US Airlines is giving $5000 to each of the 150 passengers who were aboard Flight #1549 which had an emergency landing in New York's Hudson River January 15, for the inconvenience of not having their luggage returned. Some luggage is unrecoverable but the rest are being held indefinitely while the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) undertakes its investigation. The cost of the tickets is also being refunded.

I applaud US Airways for being pro-active. I've been trying to get a $20 key deposit refund from my former property manager since July 2008. Pay attention to how the big guys do it, Cannon-Greco.
