How bad is the economic situation in Zimbabwe? Officials at London Gatwick airport impounded an Air Zimbabwe 767 because the carrier was not able to pay landing fees. Worse, airport officials also impounded passengers’ luggage (which really isn’t fair, though what the hell is fair when it comes to Zimbabwe?) The troubled carrier has been forced to cancel flights because it can’t afford fuel, and I don’t even want to think about how or if it’s bothering with maintanance. I never, ever, ever say this, but I think in this case it’s probably best to stay away.
