Do airlines pay fines for flight delays unrelated to weather? If not, that would probably solve the issue. Thoughts?

Yes, adding more regulation to an already highly-regulated industry will definitely benefit consumers.

Yes, every minute an airlines plane stays on the Tarmac longer at an airport past it's time incurs additional fees to that airport

If it is mechanical you can extract a something out of then

Generally there is no fine for a delay, mainly because this would be contrary to safety. Even charging for extra parking is very idiosyncratic based on how the airport charges work. So I wouldn't generalize that.

I wanted to apply for credit cards to get bonus points. My credit scores are 799 with equifax and 798 with TransUnion. Have 4 hard inquiries still on the record. My application for the amazon credit card got declined last March when my score was a bit lower and got ~6 hard inquiries. Personally I think it sucks that we won't find out if the credit card application is accepted or declined until the credit is hard pulled. Is there a more reliable way to be sure of the application being accepted?

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
