6 December 2010Passengers on 'direct' flight to Morocco stage mutiny London: More than 100 passengers aboard a Moroccan budget airline staged a mutiny after the pilot announced some unscheduled stops. The aircraft was operated by Jet4You make due to a 90-minute drive from Toulouse, France, the Moroccan capital of Casablanca. But the captain said the 137 passengers the plane would be traveling in Bordeaux and Lyon to stop by another four hours to the trip. The passengers rebelled against the idea and refused to sit and buckle their seat belts, so the aircraft on the runway put the whole night. And rather than reason with the paying customers, the captain simply turned off the lights and heating in the jet and let the passengers inside. "It was a shame. We bought tickets for a direct flight in less than two hours," the Daily Mail quoted the mother of two Majette Ouri, on board the aircraft, as saying. "But if they had us on board, they said we would as two unscheduled stops and less than six hours to get to Casablanca." Everyone decided they could not let that happen and refused to take off the plane. Then at that point they just turned on the lights and heater and left us there. "Passengers with a lot of children and old people among us were cold and hungry." It is frankly an appalling way to treat paying customers, "she said. Told from Toulouse airport officials said 52 of the 137 passengers off the plane during the night while 85 were still on the plane on December 5 in the morning. Jet4You said it would transport the passengers and Casablanca had found on a direct flight to collect another means people stranded elsewhere in France.
