British Airways flight lands to Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf by mistake


A British Airways plane flew by mistake from London to Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf in Germany on Monday.

Passengers found out about the mistake when the pilot said the plane was coming in to land in Edinburgh, which is around 800 kilometres away from Dusseldorf.

After the crew realised the mistake, the plane was refuelled and flown to Dusseldorf, landing in Germany with a delay of more than three and a half hours.

“We are working with WDL Aviation, who operated this flight on behalf of British Airways, to establish why the incorrect flight plan was filed,” a spokesman said.
