Passengers stranded for hours by snowstorm

Oh my, just when we thought this sort of problem was over, the weekend's nasty snowstorm resulted in hundreds of airline customers being stranded on planes on the tarmac or in a terminal at Hartford-Springfield's Bradley International Airport. Yes, the feds are going to investigate, since regulations took effect last year levying heavy fines on airlines who can't adequately care for customers during long delays. The story has had a lot of traction and here's a good summary of it.
