Did we really need a regulation for this?

Here's an example of what's wrong with the airlines. The US created a new regulation that forces airlines to let passengers leave airplanes that are stranded on the tarmac for more than 3 hours. And feed them after 2 hours.

We had to create a regulation for this. Meaning airlines weren't doing it voluntarily. To the tune of 613 incidents just from January to June 2009.

Last year Pam and I were stuck in a plane for almost 2 hours, then they decided to let us off and we waited for over 20 hours until a new plane was available to fly us to Mexico....what a way to start a holiday.
