Passengers were kept on the plane for a long time, and then their passports were taken away
The flight dragged on for a week. Tourists stuck in Angola after crash landing
More than 200 German tourists flying back from Cape Town (South Africa) to Munich, stuck at the airport of Luanda (the capital of Angola) after an emergency landing of the aircraft.
On Saturday morning, the Airbus A359 of Lufthansa took off from Cape Town and headed for Europe. Shortly after takeoff, one of its engines caught fire. The crew requested an emergency landing in Luanda.
On the ground, fire engines were waiting for the plane, which eliminated the fire. No harm done. But then the tourists were faced with a total mess. They were kept on the plane for several hours, and then people in uniform took away their passports.
Passengers were put up in an airport hotel, without giving any information about their further journey. One of the Germans immediately bought new tickets home on his own and took off with his family on his own. The rest are still in Luanda waiting for a new Lufthansa flight.
