Excuses For Mistreating Passengers Aren’t Holding Up

It now seems as if the reason 47 people¬†were forced to sit¬†overnight in a cramped regional jet parked at the Rochester, Minn., airport was simply that nobody cared enough to get them off. The airport now says Continental, which sold tickets for the ExpressJet flight, could have brought the jet to a gate and offloaded the passengers, Joe Sharkey of the New York Times reports. ExpressJet says it’s sorry, which it ought to be. Enough already. Time to pass the Air Passenger Bill of Rights.
