    US Airways passengers get $5,000 each; is it enough?

    Many US Airways (LCC) passengers who endured a crash landing in the Hudson River 12 days ago say they appreciate the $5,000 that the airline has offered but some say it's not enough.

    Joe Hart, a salesman from Charlotte who suffered a bloody nose and bruises, says he "would like to be made whole for the incident."

    It's too soon after the accident to determine what emotional distress he has suffered, he says.

    I think that anyone that was on that flight, crying 5k ain't enough for them... should be forced to say... watch unedited video of a few airliner crashes. Ya know the ones that have the bodies all burnt, shreaded and bloodied.

    And then slapped, repeatedly with a fish. A dead smelly fish.

    That man should be thankful he is alive and is able to go home and hold his wife and children. What a misguided individual.

    Apparently this type of plane and this plane in particular had known engine issues. That's where the lawyers are going with this.

    You mean that they knew that if a whole flock of geese got sucked into both engines that it would crash?! And they didn't tell us this!!!

    No, I believe there is a separate issue with the engines, but no details were given on the radio this morning. This plane had engine problems prior to this flight it seems.

    It is pretty sad that EVERYONE survived due to the genius gliding skilled pilot and they're still getting a payout and that's not enough for some. Incredible. I'd be sending the pilot Christmas cards for the rest of my life.
