In a scandalous twist of events, SaharaReporters learned that an Air Nigeria crew at Gatwick Airport yesterday asked passengers to contribute £40 each to enable them purchase fuel to depart for Lagos several hours after the flight’s takeoff was delayed.
About 190 passengers on Flight LOS-VK 0292/08 said they were surprised by the request. They confronted the airline official who had made the request, and he quickly disappeared from the riotous scene.
