Take a look at this unusual story I spied today........
"An Air 2000 flight from London Gatwick to Malaga was forced to divert to Tangiers, Morocco, because of fog in Malaga.
Six passengers on board ended up paying the fuel bill when Moroccan pump attendants refused to accept the pilot's company credit card.
According to an Air 2000 spokeswoman some of the passengers overheard the crew discussing the problem and offered to help out with cash. The pilot then asked if any other passengers could put their hands in their wallets.
When the plane finally completed its flight to Malaga - a journey which took 9 hours instead of the scheduled 3 - the passengers were paid back in travelers checks and, in one case, cash."
Never heard of this happening before! Quite unique. Seems odd that the pilot would have to personally shell out the cash for the fuel! I know it wasn't a scheduled stop....but still!
Tell me....Would YOU have dipped into your pockets to put that craft back in the air?
