Soccer fans were left heartbroken on Wednesday when air-traffic chaos allegedly caused by celebrity charter flights caused hundreds of supporters to miss the World Cup semifinal between Spain and Germany.
ACSA has blamed some private aircrafts that defied instruction to divert to other airports. This clogged parking bays, making it impossible for other planes to land

Declare a fuel emergency
This made me groan:
Shame on [the VIPs] for leaving carbon footprint
I didn’t know the World Cup was aiming to be “carbon neutral.”
Sounds like poor planning on the part of South Africa (they only had a few years to figure out how to handle the traffic spike) and poor planning on the fans who relied on airlines to get where they needed to be.
