Cough up more cash or we're flying nowhere

I know I like to complain about airline chicanery when it comes to fees, but this one blew my mind: A Comtel flight en route from India to the U.K. stopped in Vienna and refused to compete the trip until passengers pulled out their ATM cards to raise another $31,000 to pay for gas. Seriously??
