New York’s governor signed into law a bill that requires airlines to provide food, water, working restrooms and fresh air (?) to passengers who have waited more than 3 hours on the tarmac for a plane to depart. A spokesperson for an airline trade group says they are "disappointed" by the law (as if the airlines have not brought this upon themselves).
To be fair, one reason airlines are against this is because forcing a plane that has been delayed 3 hours to return to the gate for food will simply cause further delays, including possibly causing the crew to time out, which could cancel the flight altogether.
But by taking such a harsh stance against any passenger rights laws, the airlines end up looking like uncaring nutcases (which is pretty much how they’ve acted).
