Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Ryanair passengers were unable to board a plane when it was impounded because subsidies were owed to French authorities.

The jet was released Friday after Ryanair, a low-coast carrier headquarted in Ireland, paid a bill of $610,000 -- one day after the incident.

The 149 passengers were preparing to take off for a flight from Bordeaux-Merignac airport in western France to London late Thursday when French authorities ordered their Ryanair Boeing 737 impounded. They had already gone through passport control and security and were about to walk on the tarmac to board the plane when airport authorities told them to turn around.

They were put on another flight and arrived at London's Stansted airport five hours late.

This exact thing happened to me in Paris Orly, 2009. 737-700 blocked by a firetruck. We found our way home by other means. Company went bankrupt a few months later. One year after the company went bankrupt and all other company aircraft had been returned the leasing agency, the aircraft was still impounded in France.

Nothing to see here. Air Arik, an African airline had its wheels, ceremoniously changed for non payment of services and landing fees in JFK some 10 years ago.
