Like I said, by showing goodwill towards the people that are stranded, they show 'badwill' (or whatever you would call it) towards the regular passengers who expect the regular service. By just lengthening their trains (what they did) some stranded passengers were capable of experiencing the regular Thalys experience, hereby increasing the chance that in the future they will take the train between Holland and Paris instead of the plane.
