FFOCUS is concerned over long on-board delays.

FFOCUS is deeply concerned about the recent instances of passengers having to face long delays on board airliners. While the airline industry attempted to deal with the issue by putting policies in place which would protect passengers from future occurrences, it is apparent such safeguards are not enough.

Since it appears that the industry cannot adequately provide for customers' rights when lengthy ground delays take place on board, we are inclined to support a "Passengers' Bill of Rights", which is being proposed by some local members of Congress. It is clear that something must be done...and NOW.
