(KGTV) - Did an airline really ask passengers to pay for repairs to the jet before take off?

Yes!

A hydraulic pump broke on a LOT Polish Airlines flight out of Beijing.

When the worker demanded cash for the repair, 4 passengers ponied up the $360 to get it done.

The airline reimbursed them when the plane landed in Warsaw.
