British Airways Flight Lands Accidentally Lands in Wrong City


On Monday, a British Airways flight landed safely in Edinburgh, Scotland, with the only hitch being that it was supposed to land 525 miles away in Dusseldorf, Germany. The BBC reports that the flight crew was handed an incorrect flight plan, and refueled and headed to Dusseldorf once they realized the error of their ways--after two-and-a-half hours on the tarmac in Edinburgh. The light bulb moment came when the pilot announced "Welcome to Edinburgh" upon arrival, and several passengers asked if he was joking. The pilot responded by asking passengers to raise their hands if the wanted to go fo Dusseldorf, and the answer was a resounding "yes." One passenger told the BBC that "the toilets were blocked and they ran out of snacks" on the trip to the correct destination.
