Airlines for America and the Regional Airline Association have submitted an application to the Federal Aviation Administration to suspend the three-hour tarmac delay rule due to recent furloughs of air traffic controllers. "To be clear, A4A and RAA are not proposing that DOT suspend the effectiveness of the tarmac regulations in general," the application said. "On the contrary, our requested exemption is narrowly tailored and would only apply for a temporary period at all U.S. airports."
