(talking about the major airlines, here, of course...)

Ok, but if they change the flight to the next day, isn't that a breach of the original agreement?
Yes, and what you're entitled to is a refund.

Don't believe they promise you transportation on a specific day.
They do.

How can the airlines claim that it isn't a contract to provide transportation on ... a specific time
By putting it in writing in the contract.

For them to be able to change the date/times without consequence after a deal has been struck doesn't seem either fair or equitable
Fair and equitable are subjective judgements. In compliance with the contract is an objective judgement, and trumps a passengers personal subjective perspective.

How come the airlines are not forced to make the other party whole?
Because the contract that the passengers agreed to says so.
