Makes perfect sense for the pilot to think of that. Sanctions prevent purchase or sale of goods (fuel) and services...and this fit into that category, apparently.
It would seem pretty obvious that AF would have reimbursed those that contributed upon arrival at their destination

While it sounds outrageous, after reading the article I could see it being a possibility. It's not like they have an account with Syria!!!

Ladies and gentleman, this is your Captain....welcome to Syria.
Unfortunately we have encountered a small problem.
If any of you have any spare change.....would you be so kind as to put it into the first officers hat as he makes his way down the isle.
And thank you for flying Air France.
