    They have to let you off if it continues for another hour:

    US DOT

    The rulemaking finalized today builds on passenger protections issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation in December 2009, which prohibited U.S. airlines operating domestic flights from permitting an aircraft to remain on the tarmac for more than three hours, with exceptions for safety, security and air traffic control related-reasons.  The rule also required U.S. airlines to provide basic services such as access to lavatories and water in the event of extended tarmac delays.
    It's 4 hours if it is an international U.S. or foreign airline.

    Good luck Mister Met.
