real-world BA flight goes to wrong country by mistake

BA flight lands in Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf by mistake!

A British Airways flight destined for Dusseldorf in Germany has landed in Edinburgh (in Scotland) by mistake, after the flight paperwork was submitted incorrectly. 
The passengers only realised the error when the plane landed and the "welcome to Edinburgh" announcement was made. 
The plane, which started at London's City Airport, was then redirected and landed in Dusseldorf. WDL Aviation ran the BA flight through a leasing deal. 


Sophie Cooke, a 24-year-old management consultant, travels from London To Dusseldorf each week for work. 
She said when the pilot first made the announcement that the plane was about to land in Edinburgh everyone assumed it was a joke. She asked the cabin crew if they were serious. 
The pilot then asked passengers to raise their hands if they wanted to go to Dusseldorf. 
Everyone raised their hands.
