Emergency Landing In ATH, Pax Refuse To Re-board.

Fri Aug 30, 2002 6:12 pm

just on the Dutch news (radio):

111 out of about 130 passengers refused to board their plane after it had to make an emergency landing in Athens, Greece.
The flight originated in Nice, France and was en-route to Tel-Aviv.

No mention of Airline or a/c type. It must have happened late last night/very early morning today.

Anybody know anything more??

According to a newspaper in Israel it happened yesterday. Flight 947 of "Air Mediterna" (It can be a mistake) took off from Lyons at 11:00 local time. Right after the lift off the captain announced on a problem with an engine and the plane landed back in Lyons.
Some passengers who joined the flight in Nice told the newspaper that stewards suggested them not to take the flight.
During the flight passenger said that the plane dived couple of times.
At the end the plane landed in ATH and most of the passengers refused to return into it for the flight to TLV.

Long live the B747
