Airline Asks Passengers For Fuel Cash

DAMASCUS, Syria, (UPI) —  Air France confirmed passengers were asked for fuel money when a plane was diverted to Syria, but the cash was ultimately not needed.

The airline released a statement confirming the flight crew asked passengers if they had any cash for fuel because the plane had to be diverted from its intended destination of Beirut, Lebanon, due to security concerns, CNN reported Friday.

“Air France confirms that it asked passengers if they had cash, as payments for fuel can only be made in cash in Damascus,” the statement said. “Ultimately, Air France could pay the full amount itself, and passengers did not have to advance any cash.”

The airline said the passengers on the Wednesday flight were flown to Cyprus and taken to Beirut Thursday.

“Air France apologizes to its customers for the inconvenience,” the airline said.
