I saw an AP wire today that said the following, even though Ryanair doesn't fly to South Africa.
Budget airline Ryanair says it's forcing South African travelers to the U.K. to do a test in the Afrikaans language to prove their nationality in an apparent effort to weed out those with phony passports. ...
"Due to the high prevalence of fraudulent South African passports, we require passengers traveling to the U.K. to fill out a simple questionnaire issued in Afrikaans," Ryanair said in a brief press statement. "If they are unable to complete this questionnaire, they will be refused travel and issued with a full refund."
Who is using fake South African passports in Europe that made Ryanair do this? Is this a widely known problem?
