What's the difference between "stranded passengers" and "waylaid passengers"?
I got waylaid passengers from here
Passengers were reportedly kept in the plane on the tarmac for an extended period, without air conditioning, before being allowed into the terminal. The airline then told the waylaid passengers that they would be shuttled by bus five hours north to Dallas, because Spirit does not operate a flight between Houston and Ft. Lauderdale.
If you read the article, you won't get any slightest idea that the passengers were being attacked or ambushed or anything close to being waylaid.
