One had to expect the airlines should come up with a new way to gouge the public. At one time you bought a ticket and you were flown from point A to point B, got a meal, free soda, blankets, pillows and your baggage flew free and saw a movie. Today you buy a ticket and your still flown from point A to point B after you pay for a seat, after you pay to have your luggage fly with you; on-board you pay for the meal and for soda, water, blankets and pillows.

So I guess it is only fair that now we pay for our share of the fuel that is need to get from point A to point B. After all without it you will be stuck at point A (sic)

I can see it now - "Ladies and Gentleman, thank you for flying British Airways today. We will not be making it all the way to New York however. Unfortunately, the couple in 32A & B did not pay for the fuel. I hope everyone can swim!

This is not the first time an airline has had to ask for help with buying fuel. I don't know anything about Comtel Air, but even reputable airlines have in the past diverted to alternate airports where they did not have a fuel account or credit agreement, and have had to literally pass the Captain's hat to raise cash to buy enough fuel to move on. The passengers of course have always been reimbursed. Other times, crews have had to use their own credit cards.

Ya like the clips show people with their money out passing to what appeared to be a stwart on the plane. Ok. they are not paying just buying a ticket from that location to England. now does that sound better....

The YOU TUBE Video I seen / Heard you could hear the Flight Attendant asking the passengers to pay up or the flight would NOT continue , someone recorded it with a cell phone and posted it to you tube, thankfully !! either way, the whole situtation is ridlicious and absurd !

have they never heard of a electronic fund transfer? No excuse for this to happen.

There are some places that only accept cash for fuel and services. So that they can pay themselves and those people involved on the spot. Whether they pocket extra for themselces i dont know. They may not get the money if it is wired to their company.

All I have to say is PAY NOW or PAY LATER.
People want cheap tickets now I bet they'll pay for it later.
Remember the services the airlines provided 10 years ago at no charge?
Everyone wanted cheap tickets causing airlines to go bankrupt and dissapear.
Now we pay the same that we used to pay for tickets and only get transported from point A to B.
Prices always go up, but services rarely return.
PAY NOW or PAY LATER but you will PAY.

I lived in Austria near Vienna for 10 years. I can't imagine a Civilized Country and a First Rate City Airport to not make arrangements for the Airline to continue. Even if the Airline had to make a non scheduled flight, because they did not have enough fuel when they left Point A, they should never have taken off. I can't picture any competent Pilot taking off with insufficient fuel on board.
