U.S. Limits Tarmac Wait for Passengers

The other big piece of legislature that went unnoticed yesterday.

Airlines that let a plane sit on the tarmac for more than two hours without offering passengers food or water, or more than three hours without letting passengers off, will face fines of $27,500 a passenger, the Secretary of Transportation announced on Monday.

This would have come in handy last year when a guy died on my plane flight to Boston and I was sitting on a Detroit tarmac zonked out of my head from sleeping pills for waaaaay tooooo loooong.
