I get that. But the 3rd set of passengers was just too much. People were actually screaming at them as they got off the plane. It was wild.
Wow. That's absolutely unreal. The worst I've seen was an EWR-SFO which finally cleared its mx delay when a pax got up and demanded to be let off. They disarmed the door to let the pax out, and it promptly failed to re-arm, so we took another hour of delay.

No, it sounds like the answer was "they can refuse after the brake has been released". Which is reasonable, and half the question I was asking.
