The United States Department of Transportation has fined JAL for excessive tarmac delays. The fine is due to two separate incidents in which JAL forced passengers to wait more than 4 hours on the tarmac before being given the opportunity to be deplaned.

According to a consent agreement, JAL has agreed to pay the fine in order to avoid potential litigation. The airline does disagree, however, that fees can be assessed for delays on a per-passenger basis.

Both incidents involved JAL Flight 004 Tokyo Narita to JFK. In January, Flight 004 diverted to Chicago-O'Hare, and in May diverted to Washington Dulles.

keeping people that long on a plane is very excessive.

Agreed. After about 90 minutes, I would have been done and shown myself to the nearest door. I think the fine(s) should be more significant than they already are. Then maybe someone (airlines) will learn.
