Liverpool fans let down by cancelled flights

Tour operator Worldchoice Sports cancelled three flights to Kiev, affecting up to 1,000 supporters, amid claims they had failed to secure a landing spot. "We now must accept the fact that some fans who have tickets may not be able to make the game", said Mayor Joe Anderson in a statement.

Anderson said he had been in talks with the mayor of Kiev and the director of the airport in an attempt to find alternative flights.

"Now they're trying to do a couple of things for us - they're trying to look and see if we can use an airport nearby either to get an airbus in there or some smaller crafts either today or tomorrow".

"We've had conversations again with the mayor and the director of the airport there".

"I think if we manage to find some grounds in which we can discuss this with the European national associations, the European leagues, UEFA and the clubs, I think it's just a normal evolution you would have in the game", he said. "To reiterate - this problem is with Kiev".

On Thursday, it was reported that around one thousand Liverpool fans have been left stranded in the United Kingdom amid travel chaos stemming from cancelled flights over a landing spot dispute between travel companies.

Worldchoice Sports publicly apologised to fans in a statement on Twitter.


"The airline said they could go ahead, so what's happened?"

So we've got a day to get a refund! Not @LFC fault but is that are left here just get a refund and all swept under the carpet eh?

Financial adviser Jason McGimpsey, 43, was looking forward to the trip of a lifetime but was told on Thursday his flight was cancelled.

"Worldchoice Sports had been stalling on giving us e-tickets and exact departure times, and it's become clear why that was the case".

Witnesses described the troublemakers as a "pack of dogs" as they laid into Liverpool fans who were eating dinner at a restaurant called Rooster Grill, not far from the final venue Olimpiyskiy Stadium, the Independent reports.

"I've been offered a refund but it doesn't go anywhere near compensating me for what I've lost", he added.

Chris Bolland, who has supported Liverpool for 50 years, will have to watch the game from home.
