Nobody moved, then they threatened that the plane wouldn't fly till this was resolved. Everyone sat still as it was clear that they had a window to take off in. Eventually they offered daft money and some students took the cash. Cant remember who much it was, I would've taken it as i live 5 minutes from the airport but I was meeting a mate in London and he would've already been on his way.
I never flew, by the way.
Perhaps the fact that people by now take such begging or blackmailing exercises by companies for granted is even worse than the event of them happening at all.
