I doubt very moch the passengers were told to push the plane

Either they asked for volunteers or a passenger had and idea and aked if anyone else was prepared to give it a go.

Funny though that the tractor couldn't but the people could.

Yes, it was probably more a case of, please help to push or you stay here.

Just been on the local news

There was an idea to push if anyone wanted to help not sure if it came from the airline, the airport of the pax...it was not a demand, no one was told to push or you stay here.

There will be a backlash form H&S and pax are not supposed to be on the apron doing such things, which is no surprise.

Obviously the airline equivalent to the RAC or AA does not exist over in those parts.

Maybe a few Ladas (to pull) and a few chains or ships' heavy mooring ropes may have been an alternative method. :highly_amused:
