It added that there will be no deviation from the policy, and that "no must ride crew member can displace a customer who has boarded an aircraft". The legislation, due this spring, is to outline what passengers can expect from airlines in situations such as bumping from overbooked planes or for lost or damaged luggage.

United Airlines has updated its policies after the airline was harshly criticized following an incident where a passenger was dragged off a flight earlier this week. But no-one volunteered, so the airline chose the passengers. After several attempt to escort him off the plane, Dao was ripped from his seat and dragged down the aisle. Two other officers have been placed on leave, the Associated Press reported.
The airline needed seats so that it could reposition crew, according to a statement from United.
United CEO Oscar Munoz keeps apologizing, but the cell phone videos of Dao's removal - he is 69, by the way - keep playing.
Dao's lawyer said he doesn't believe the incident was racially motivated and that it appears that airlines don't have standard procedures for kicking people off plane.
The video has been viewed millions of times worldwide, and caused a global uproar and grabbed headlines in multiple countries. The incident - and Munoz's muted response to it - also prompted worldwide outrage, particularly from China, where public anger was fueled by reports that Dao is Asian.
Almost a week since the incident, United is still dealing with the backlash.
"I continue to be disturbed by what happened". She said the change was meant to ensure that episodes like what happened last week "never happen again". "No one should ever be mistreated this way ..."
"I am writing to you today to convey that such an incident would be unacceptable in Canada".
Dr Dao has now been released from the hospital and is planning on suing United.
According to a report from NPR, United Airlines can no longer bump passengers that have already been seated, updating its former policies for United employees.
Munoz also pledged to conduct a wide-ranging review of company policies. It also said United pilots are "infuriated" by what happened and blamed the incident on the "grossly inappropriate" actions of the security officers.
A hearing for the petition scheduled for next week "will not take place", said Thomas Demetrio, attorney for the passenger David Dao, in an email.
