Another airline tarmac stranding, and calls for action

Hard news is a little scarce about the most recent case of airline passengers trapped on a plane: Sun Country Airlines, a low-cost leisure oriented carrier, kept passengers waiting on a jet at New York's Kennedy International Airport for six hours. The incident prompted more congressional calls for regulation to force the airline to meet minimum standards of care for delays of more than three hours. Read the only story I found here.
