I can only speak for myself...but i argue it only b/c it's a contract he entered into when he bought the ticket. No different than breaking a law & subsequently claiming ignorance of that law as an excuse... if he wasn't aware of it..he should have been, while I understand most average travelers may not even know it exists, that's no excuse for throwing a tantrum when it's enforced
