Weathering delays

The Washington Post has a brief column about weather-related air travel delays - click here for the whole story.

The airlines refuse to compensate passengers if delays are due to factors outside their control - such as weather. Unfortunately, their hub-and-spoke system means that a thunderstorm in one part of the country can cause delays on the opposite coast. Outside their control? You be the judge.
