Cardiff chairman Mehmet Dalman indicated that Nantes had sent an invoice for the first instalment, worth 6m euros (£5.27m).In the same interview Dalman added: “We must show respect to the family. There is the process of recovering the plane.”On Thursday night the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said a body had been recovered from the wreckage.Cardiff had earlier expressed “surprise” that Nantes made the demand while the recovery attempts were under way.
It is understood Nantes are threatening legal action if they do not receive a payment within 10 days.A source at Cardiff says they will honour the contract but not until they have clarified “all the facts”.
