No long tarmac delays in March 2011
And, despite airline industry concerns, the world hasn't come to an end.
From May 2010 through March 2011, there were a mere 16 tarmac delays of more than three hours, down precipitously from 689 from May 2009 through March 2010.
It's pretty clear that all the industry alarmism ahead of the rule that promises stiff fines for keeping passengers stranded on the tarmac was self-serving ... and ultimately meaningless.
The best part of this, of course, is that we're now in a position to enjoy flying more. Who even thought that was possible a year ago?!
