Welll, thread about stranded passengers inspired me to write this. What happens to passengers after emergency landing (in not destination airport)? Does airline later gives new tickets to the destination and does it gives you hotel, etc? What if airline doesn't has direct route from airport where the aircraft landed to destination? Would it buy tickets on other airlines?
And, finally, what happens if the emergency landing is done in third country, not the country of departure and not the destination country? What happens to these passengers who has no visa to that country? Are they allowed to go out or are they forced to leave in airport? For example, if some Tokyo-Shenyang flight does emergency in Pyongyang, where there are lack of flights out, what would happen to passengers? What would happen if plane would do an emergency in some wartorn state, like Sierra Leone, where there are hardly any flights from? WOuld airline send it's own plane to take the passengers?
