French passngers refused to board Karthago Airlines plane over safety fears
24 August 2005

An Airbus A.300 owned by Fly Air and operated by Karthago Airlines from Tunisia returned to Paris-Orly Airport due to a generator failure. The 224 Djerba-bound passengers refused to reboard their flight and had to spend the night at Paris before an alternate flight using Tunis Air aircraft had been arranged. The DGAC grounded the plane to carry out further investigations. The aircraft was found to be leaking fuel and other fluids, according to one airport source. (AP, Expatica)
