Bottom line is that the enacted statute was simply designed to placate a segment of the traveling public. It does not require FAA to issue rules (which FAA could do without having Congress enact the statute) and it does not require that the rules do much if anything.

It also does not require family seating (just one parent/guardian with the kids) and does not require that the carrier assign what amount to premium seats, e.g. those for which you pay extra.
