ATHENS, November 10 (RIA Novosti) - Russian soccer fans have spent more than 24 hours at an airport in central Greece after pilots refused to transport them, an airport spokesperson said Saturday.

A group of 146 people, who came to support Zenit St. Petersburg, which beat Greece's Larissa 3-2 in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup group stage Thursday, could not return to St. Petersburg from the city of Volos as the plane commander refused to take off saying some of them were drunk and bothered the crew.

"They have been provided food. Talks are underway on how they will leave for Russia, and a decision is yet to be found," the airport representative said.
