Makes me wonder if it is an incident that can only happen in
Britain. Surely the pilot mentioned the destination pre flight or at least whilst in the air. Were the passengers to embarrassed to say something?
On imgur lately, a guy posted screenshots of his texting with his gf, in which he mentioned flying over by mistake to India instead of Indiana. She seemed to be quite angry and would not believe he took this wrong a flight until he posted a selfie with obviously ... India in the background. Maybe fake, but funny.

Monday morning, just like any other. The Mrs and I crawled out of the sack and stumbled out to the kitchen and fetch our cups of coffee.
We sat down with the morning paper (the internet) and sipped away the groggy.
All was normal, then out of the blue came the sound of water running...... we looked at each other like you gonna go check or me? Well she went to the source of the sound which turned out to be to fridge and opened up the freezer side to discover the ice maker spewing a full blast stream of cold water all over everything in there. I ran to get a bucket then turned off the water valve under the sink that was sourcing the water. It soak the frozen food and turned to cardboard containers for the frozen waffles to wet paper with a good amount of water now on the wood floor we ran and got towels to mop it up.
Had whatever gave way done so any earlier it would have filled up the freezer side like a bathtub and when the water pressure overcame the seal, Whoosh! gallons and gallons of water would have rushed out and we may have been paddling to out morning coffee.
But no, it all waited till we were up and conscious.
It's a relatively new fridge. The don't make anything like they usta.
I laugh only because it hurts so much, today I began hassling Miele to foot the $600+ bill for the replacement of the pressure valve on my 28 month old dishwasher. Warranty is 24 months. Don't give me any bullshit about Miele quality.
