Air France Jet Turned Back By US CDG-ORD

US authorities have ordered an Air France flight from Paris to Chicago to turn around after only two hours in the air after concerns about a passenger.

"After the plane had left the Americans reacted and said that one of the passengers had a name that was on their list," French police said.

Flight AF050 landed at Charles de Gaulle airport at 1915 (1715 GMT) on Friday, four hours after taking off.

The passenger in question and four others were taken for checks.

There was no information given on the names of the passengers, their age or nationalities.

Air France said the flight would take off again in the evening, after the plane had been checked over.

French police said flights from France to Britain and the United States were being treated with extra caution following Thursday's bomb attacks in London, AFP reported.

In May flights from Italy and France to Boston were diverted because of fears about passengers on board.

In September last year a flight carrying the singer Cat Stevens to the US was diverted because the name he adopted when he became a Muslim, Yusuf Islam, was on the US no-fly list.

Now wount it be smart for the US to give out a Compy of the No fly list to Airports around the world, so that those unlucky enough to have the same name as potential terrosrits can be checked out, instead of diverting a whole plane 2 hours after takeoff.

My only guess could be last min. passengers or those who are either on standby or purchased a ticket at the airport the day of. Now it is the airlines' job (those in the EU) to take care of checking their list and send off the manifest to the country of the destionation. Now when the US runs it and finds a name they want they turn the a/c around. It's the airlines' fault for allowing the passenger on the aircraft but I guess it's hard to run a name if they get on the aircraft only 5min before departure.

What kind of reasoning is that? I know of no major airline that flies into the United States that would put their certificate with the FAA at such a risk. And even if you are right there are far more countries that despise such actions and would have no problem rejecting any flight plans of the airline. VS, BA, UA, AF, etc. are all airlines that have major hubs around the world and would probably have no issues rejecting a passenger at the gate if they knew that person(s) was on a no-fly list. I'm sorry but you make no sense at all.

Why can't the lists be checked prior to take off? It wouldn't be that hard to pre-screen the crafts list, say 24 hours before the flight, with additional screening of pax changes within the last 24 hours. Any walk up pax on the day, would be subject to further checks if applicable.

Who pays for that waste of 4 hours? The airline, the US? Does AF need to pay the extra landing and take off fees at CDG?

I think that the US needs to adopt a better model that the one the have. I agree it is about safety, but, I think if the plane has taken off, then it should go to its destination and be dealt with there.

Better safe than sorry, thats all I can say, these inconvenices will happen from time to time due to the terrorist threats that exist in our world enviornment. Even if the action was not necessary or in error (it has happened), necessary precautions must be taken.

As for the list - you dont really think its a document or a booklet with a list of names, do you that the governments can give out to airlines and other users - its a computer base that is constantly being updated, revised and changed based on intellegence and other information. The pax manifest should be processed and cleared prior to departure, but occassionally things will go wrong and errors will occur and action will be required after the subject flight has departed. And, before anyone over-reacts, remember how many international flights per day enter the US and how rare a flight is cancelled or turned back due to security questions concerning pax on board that flight.

And, of course, the nations of the EU work in coordination with the US on matters such as these - they all work on the "list" together, for all we know, French intellegence could have gotten some new information about the pax(s) and they themselves suggested that the aircraft come back - none of us know exactly how this works, and thats the idea.

Its going to be difficult couple of weeks following the London attacks - and flights out of Paris, for some reason, have always been a concern.

Actually this is just a policy of the United States, and if they want to have a no-fly list, they have to make sure everything is allright, and they have to check what's coming in and out prior to departures. OK if they don't want this guy or that one, it's their right, but all other passengers have to pay for that, and AF too. I personnaly don't like the US's policy about that, but let's not talk about that here.

AFs job is to fly, so I just hope that the US will pay AF for that landing and lost time.

I'm not trying to make light of this situation at all. When 'planes have to turn back due to some person on the no fly list, do passengers get extra frequent flyer points for the extra "actual miles" flown? I think it would be a small compensation for the hassle and aggravation caused to passengers who are on aboard.

Seeing as it is an EU airline the passengers did't get off too bad. I made this up for another post. Took me a while. It's the EU Passenger's rights; (Mind all spelling errors)

---------------------------------------------------

As for your rights as a EU Passenger;

Denied Boarding and Cancellation
If you are denied boarding or your flight is cancelled, the airline operation your flight must offer you a financial compensation and assistance. These rights apply, provided you check in on time, for any flight, including charters:

  • from an EU airport, or
  • to an EU airport from one outside the EU, when operated by an EU airline


Denied Boarding
When there are too many passengers for the seats available, an airline must first ask for volunteers to give up their seats in return for agreed benefits. These must include the choice of either refund of your ticket (with a free flight back to your initial point of departure, when relevant) or alternative transport to your final destination.

If you are not a volunteer, the airline must pay you compensation of:


  • €250 for flights of 1,500km or less
  • €400 for longer flights within the EU, and for other flights between 1,500km and 3,500km
  • €600 for flights over 3,000 km outside the EU.


Compensation my be halved if you a e not delayed more than 2, 3, or 4 hours, respectively.

The airline must also give you:


  • A choice of either a refund of your ticket (with a free flight back to your initial point of departure, when relevant) or alternative transport to your final destination, and
  • Meals and refreshments, hotel accommodation when necessary (including transfers) and communication facilities


Cancellation

Whenever your flight is cancelled, the operating airline must give you:


  • A choice of either a refund of your ticket (with a free flight back to your initial point of departure, when relevant) or alternative transport to your final destination, and
  • Meals and refreshments, hotel accommodation when necessary (including transfers) and communication facilities.


The airline may also have to compensate you, at the same level as for denied boarding, unless it give you sufficient advance notice. You shall be informed about alternative transport.

Refunds may be in cash, by bank transfer or cheque or, with your signed agreement, in travel vouchers, and must be paid within 7 days to avoid further penalties.

If you do not receive these rights, complain immediately to the airline operating the flight.


Long Delays

Immediate Assistance

If you check in on time for any flight, including charters;

  • from an EU airport, or
  • to an EU airport from one outside the EU, when operated by an EU airline,

    and if the airline operating the flight expects a delay

    • of 2 hours or more, for flights of 1,500km or less
    • of 3 hours or more, for longer flights within the EU, and for other flights between 1,500km and 3,500km,
    • of 4 hours or more for flights over 3,500km outside the EU,


    The airline must give you meals and refreshments, hotel accommodations when necessary (including transfers) and communication facilities.

    When the delay is 5 hours or more, the airlines must also offer to refund your ticket (with a free flight back toy our initial point of departure, when relevant)

    If you do not receive these rights, complain immediately to the airline operating the flight.

    Later Claims

    When the EU airline is responsible for the delay of a flight anywhere in the world, you may claim up to 4,150 SDR (*) for any resulting damages. If the airline does not agree with your claim, you may go to court.

    You can claim form the airline with which you have a contract or form that actually operating the flight, if they are different.

    Baggage

    You may also claim up to 1,000 SDR (*) for damages caused by the destruction, damage, or loss or delay of your baggage on a flight by an EU airline, anywhere in the world. If the airline does not agree with your claim, you may go to court.

    For damage to check-in baggage, you must claim in writing within 7 days of its return and for delayed baggage within 21 days of its return.

    You can claim from the airline with which you have a contract or form that actually operating the flight, if they are different

    (*) 1 SDR = €1.18
    For the current exchange rate, contact Europe Direct

    Injury and death in accidents

    You may claim for damages caused by injury or death resulting from an accident on a flight by an EU airline, anywhere in the world. You have the right to an advance payment for immediate economic needs, if the airline does not agree with your claim, you may go to court.

    You can claim from the airline with which you have a contract or form that actually operating the flight, if they are different.

    Package Holidays

    In addition to the rights described above, you may claim damaged from your tour operator if it fails to provide the services you have booked within the EU, whatever your destination. These rights apply to failure to provide any flight included in your package. Moreover, if the tour operator does not provide a significant part of the package booked, it is obliged to assist you and make alternative arrangements including travel, without extra cost to you.


    ---------------------------------------------------

    Who will pay to offer all that? Who knows. Regardless all those passengers should be well aware of these benifts. Because if so, goddamnit I'd board a flight knowing it was going to turn back.

    Take Care,

    Matt

    I totally agree I have no clue why they are unable to pre check all passengers considering most PAX already have paid for the ticket by the time of check-in so gathering information should not be a prob. What if a PAX does not check-in, or is unable to board? Possibly they are unable to run the information till check-in is complete, after all in most foreign countries they ask/enter your passport number at the check-in counter so maybe that is an issue. Another possibility could be the US must wait for the airline to submit the final list of PAX that have boarded and by the time the US has reviewed the list, the aircraft is about an 20 minutes to and hour out . . . .

    You fail to understand that it has NOTHING to do with airlines themselves - if the No-Fly list was distributed globally, there are many entities that would be able to obtain it (govt. intelligence services, terrorist groups, crime syndicates) without the consent or even knowledge of the airlines. Therefore, it is best to keep the list closely held, secure, and out of the hands of foreigners, with the exception of a few closely trusted allies.
