British Airways flight was supposed to go to Germany. It went to Scotland

London (CNN) — Passengers on a British Airways flight from London’s City Airport to Dusseldorf in Germany were met with a surprise Monday morning when their plane touched down Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.

The travel error happened because of an incorrectly filed flight plan, leading both the pilot and cabin crew to believe the flight was bound for Edinburgh.

The flight was operated by German leasing company WDL Aviation on behalf of the British Airways subsidiary airline BA CityFlyer. The incorrect flight plan was filed at WDL Aviation’s offices in Germany.

I’d be asking the question to the pilots

“At what point did you think you were on course baring in mind you cross the English channel shortly after take off… and then proceeded to head north over land” :joy::joy:
