      Regards, Dux -perhaps BP's for a brief visit this Saturday but have to leave at 11:50.
      Somebody documented this. And yes, airlines are cancelling instead of possibly being fined. And since they are mostly weather related, as you said, they are not on the hook for food or lodging.

        I retired about a year and half ago... so I'm not totally current. But the procedure was to restart the 4 hour clock by offering the opportunity to get off the airplane. That was the main fallback, instead of canceling. It is no fun sitting and waiting, but sometime [OprahFrozenChickenShooting][OprahFrozenChickenShooting][OprahFrozenChickenShooting][OprahFrozenChickenShooting] happens. There are so many airplanes and so few airports. It is amazing that the whole thing works as smoothly as it does anyway.

          I saw a movie listed, too. Renfrew of the Royal Mounted (1937): https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029475/

            Ah-so, the one that I recall was one of those "Big-Little" pocket books. Early 40s (or thereabouts).
