Has US Airways Treated Passenger Survivors Fairly?

A modest pilot Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger seemed to think his hero's welcome-home parade was more than enough a couple weekends ago, but some passengers from Flight 1549 feel that US Airways has not taken the appropriate steps to make up for their near death experience.

Since the crash landing in the Hudson River, the survivors (aka everyone on board) has received $5,000 for lost luggage and other expenses. In addition, the airline has given them premier status . . . for a year. The status includes first-class domestic travel (when available) and one upgrade to Europe or Hawaii.
