If you were actually on the taxiway for four hours with the door closed the airline is subject to roughly $10k per passenger fines I think. Airlines will start returning flights to gates to sit with the door open at like the 2hr mark to avoid any risk of those fines usually

Highly doubt you were on the tarmac for four hours. This is one of the rules that airlines strictly abide by because of the harsh penalties mentioned above. Also, you do not have a “right to deplane” as by purchasing a ticket, you agree to their terms of carriage, which pretty much all airlines I’m aware of have verbiage to prevent people to exercise their “right to deplane” whenever they want because yes, it inconveniences the fuck out of everyone except your entitled, ignorant self

We had pulled away from the gate for deicing. I was told there is a 4 hour requirement after which you can get out. After 5.5 hours of complete comic shit show I was able to deplane, under the disapproving eye of fellow passwngers. Never seen anything like this: deicing truck didn't do the job properly, pilots ask for redo, truck got stuck in the mud under the wing of airplane so we couldn't even move back to the gate, tow truck was called but damaged the deicing equipment when pulling the truck out of the mud.....

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
