TWO hours should be the maximum delay on a tramac. Health issues as well as overuse of restroom facilities before the trip is finally completed are major issues. Water should always be available to waiting passengars. If the delay is weather related it is out of the carriers control, but IF it is MAINTENANCE related, then all passengars should be given compensation. Without having to pay compensation (a cost) the carriers have no incentative to ado their best.
At what point does it become unfair to the airline should also consider “at what point is their greed unfair to the travelers?” The airlines sell mostly non refundable tickets these days, therefore they still get paid for no-shows. Why allow them to sell the seat twice? I suggest NOT allowing overbooking, but allowing travelers to go to the airport and take a chance on getting a no-show seat at a reduced fare. The airline is still coming out ahead.
