Note for Column G: Airlines do not report to BTS on passenger movements. Opportunity to Deplane is inferred by comparing Total Tarmac Time with Longest Single Tarmac Time. If the total tarmac time is greater than the longest single tarmac time, the inference is that passengers were given the opportunity to deplane at the diversion airport. If the two times are equal, it is inferred that passengers were not given the opportunity to deplane. BTS has instructed air carriers that tarmac time accumulates until passengers are given the opportunity to deplane the aircraft (most carriers measure this time when the main passenger door is opened or when the parking break is set). See BTS Technical Directive 17 Section XII.
