Furious Chelsea fans who pay the club £ 979 for FLIGHT ONLY to the Europa League final are stranded at Luton Airport & # 39; because there is no fuel & # 39; – and are now faced with a race against the clock to make the game
Chelsea fans are stuck at Luton Airport with long delays that stop their journey to Baku for the Europa League final.
Thomas Cook Sport offered return flights earlier this month for the 2,468-mile trip to Baku for a price of £ 979 and that does not apply to the match ticket.
A fan claimed on Twitter the reason behind the delays was a lack of fuel for the aircraft: & # 39; @ChelseaFC please complete this mess of a trip to Baku. I know that Thomas Cook might be a substance, but not a fuel for the aircraft? Really? & # 39;

The supporters of Arsenal and Chelsea were furious that both parties received only 6,000 tickets, despite the Baku Olympic Stadium with a capacity of just under 70,000.
UEFA stated that the small allocation of tickets was due to the airport in Azerbaijan that was unable to deal with an influx of 15,000 people who came to the country.
In addition to the travel ghost, Arsenal & # 39; s Henrikh Mkhitaryan have not yet made the trip to Azerbaijan and will miss the competition due to fear of his safety.
UEFA has warned Arsenal that protests from their fans are not tolerated.
Moreover, it appeared from UEFA's own report that Baku was not a suitable host for the Europa League final.
