Airline hits up stranded passengers for fuel money 

A Comtel Air flight carrying hundreds of passengers from India to England was stranded for six hours at a Vienna refueling stop. The Austrian charter service had just filed for bankruptcy. The flight crew needed to take up a collection of more than $31,000 from the passengers to purchase enough fuel for the rest of the trip to Birmingham, England.
