It's About Time!

I was just perusing one of my favorite travel blogs: National Geographic's "Intelligent Travel Blog" when I came across this article about the Department of Transportation issuing a three-hour regulation limit on the amount of time a plane can be stranded on the tarmac without returning to the gate.

While I am lucky to not have experienced being stranded on the tarmac for an unreasonable amount of time, that is certainly one of my travel fears. Hopefully this new regulation will make airports and airlines more aware of travelers' needs for food, water, and clean restrooms. Saying the airport is "closed" is just not acceptable.
