    Default to/for

    For many passengers this means on /for wait of hours or days, with all the associated inconvenience, until the missing item is being located and forwarded.

    In this sentence, should i use the prep. on or for.
    I choosed to because normaly we say to wait.

    Is this correct or is there another away to writte it?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Hi, Try this:

    For many passengers this can mean a wait of hours or perhaps days, with all the associated inconvenience, until the missing item can be located and forwarded.
