Pilots have stopped 222 deportations of asylum seekers from Germany by refusing to take off with them on board. Many of the pilots refused to take control of flights taking people back to Afghanistan, where violence is still rife following years of war and occupation by Western forces. One of the airlines involved said pilots made the decisions on a "case-by-case" basis if they believed "flight safety could be affected".

“You’re not going to take him; I’m not flying," the pilot said. "Someone’s life is at risk.”
