In light of the $900,000 civil penalty levied today against AMR's American Eagle unit for tarmac delays at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, I thought it would be interesting to ask members what their longest tarmac delays were. If you don't mind, add in the comments what the airline was (United, Aeroflot, etc.), which airport (Newark Liberty, Princess Juliana/Maho Beach, etc.), whether it was on arrival or departure, whether it was before or after the penalty regulations took effect, and what if anything you received from the airline (money, miles, an apology, a meal, a pair of pajamas, or whatever). Any other relevant comments would be welcome as well.
