FIFA may compensate Dbn fans
Johannesburg - FIFA may compensate fans who missed Spain's World Cup semi-final win over Germany because of congestion at Durban's new airport.
Hundreds of fans had their flights delayed or turned away from King Shaka International Airport on Wednesday after an increase in private jets contributed to all the landing slots being filled.
FIFA spokesperson Nicolas Maingot says the football body will definitely look at the cases of fans affected by flight problems.
Even when some planes landed, they had to take off again and head to the old Durban International Airport.
Attendance at Moses Mabhida Stadium was 1 800 below capacity for Spain's 1-0 victory.
