Air France leaves Lagos-bound passengers stranded at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris

Some passengers flying Air France from France to Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos State, have been left stranded at Charles de Gaulle in Paris.
According to various social media posts, the passengers – mainly Nigerians – have been in the airport for over 24 hours, sleeping in the lounge.

Air France was alleged to have ignored the passengers’ situation, and also invited the police on the passengers when they complained.

According to an Instagram user, Seun Oloketuyi, the Air France flight was scheduled to leave Paris by 7.00 am on August 25th.

He wrote, “Lagos bound passengers waiting at Charles de Gaulle Airport Paris, some since 7:00am (Aug 25th) others from about 9:00am for their flight, left by Air France to sleep in the Airport Lounge.
No sympathy or empathy for the women and children. At least put them in a hotel!!! They will be here till 4:00 pm of Aug 26th when they say their flight is likely to depart.
This is so unfair and unacceptable!”

In her post on Facebook, Mercy Makinde, who also reported the ignoble situation of the passengers, noted that the airline should have lodged the passengers in a hotel

She wrote, “Do Nigerians really deserve to get treated like this by foreign airlines???

“It’s not out of place for Airlines to have operational issues and if that happens you lodge your passengers in a comfortable accommodation with adequate compensation. But leaving them at the airport lounge and when they complain you call the police for them is totally out of place !

“This is why we should have our own National Carrier! Then we would have an option not to fly these people. And when they know there is competition they will sit up! But where they enjoy a route monopoly… they know you will always come back….they are at liberty to treat you as they please.
