Irony

March 29, 2006
There was a story on the BBC today about a Ryanair jet that landed at the wrong airport in Londonderry. No harm done, just six miles short of the mark. Embarassing for the pilot, but we all make mistakes.
Browsing the Ryanair website tonight, I found this news article.

Don’t fly from the wrong airport, says Ryanair!

Fares from 10*

Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline, today (March 15) informed
passengers at Glasgow International Airport that they could save both time and
money…flying from Glasgow Prestwick!

Cock-ups like that are what make us human – but they are much funnier when they happen to someone else.

    I remember a pilot (Spanair, I believe) attempting to land on the motorway that runs close to Oslo airport. I would have thought even a child would be able to see the difference between a motorway and an airport runway. ~Sharon J
