British Airways flight goes to wrong destination

Wrong flight plan was submitted before take-off

A British Airways flight bound for Dusseldorf, Germany flew to Edinburgh in Scotland by mistake.

It said the wrong flight paperwork was submitted before take-off from London and air traffic control therefore allowed the flight to take that route.

The passengers realised they were in the wrong country when a "Welcome to Edinburgh" announcement was made.

The plane later flew on to Germany.

The flight was operated by German firm WDL Aviation for BA as part of a leasing deal.

British Airways has launched an investigation and apologised to passengers.
