CHICAGO, IL - NOVEMBER 14: A passenger waits for luggage in the baggage area that services passengers of American and American Eagle Airlines at O'Hare Airport on November 14, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. The U.S. government fined American Eagle $900,000 for repeated tarmac delays that stranded passengers on planes for more than three hours. This is the first time an airline has been fined since the rule limiting the time a commercial airline could keep passengers sitting on the tarmac was imposed last year.
