Post EuroSun B737-300 impounded at MST

Turkish operator EuroSun has a B737-300 stranded at Maastricht since yesterday after the fuel on board was impounded!! Some argument with a Dutch tour operator or agent I believe.

If my translation from a local Dutch newspaper is correct, the aircraft departed last night after the company made an initial payment of NLG 75,000 to a Dutch travel agency which is claiming NLG 256,000 in lost revenue as a consequence of a newspaper article on EuroSun which alleged the airline was unsafe. The travel agency received more than 200 holiday cancellations in one day from worried customers!

Thumbs down

Yes, you're right, Avman! According Dutch newspaper 'De Telegraaf', Eurosun made a bad move two weeks ago when a Boeing 737-300 flying from Antalya to Amsterdam was forced to make two (!) emergency-landings at Istanbul because of severe technical problems. Eurosun's (short)history is full of incidents. No wonder no one wants to fly with this carrier anymore....
