Watch the moment passengers laugh in disbelief when told they’ve landed at wrong airport
Passengers could not resist laughing at the announcement that they had landed in Edinburgh

This is the hilarious moment a baffled airline worker realised a flight destined for Dusseldorf in Germany had landed in Edinburgh by mistake.

Passengers apparently only realised the error when the plane landed and the “welcome to Edinburgh” announcement was made.

The video shows the worker asking the packed plane: “No one to Edinburgh? No one to Edinburgh?”

The passengers shout back “no” and he answers: “Ok. Please don’t make photos or videos.”

‘Holey Smoley’

Passengers can be heard asking each other “how can you now know that?” and another said: “The embarrassment of taking us to the wrong place”.

He tells the cabin “holey smoley” and the passengers can be heard laughing in disbelief.

The incident happened on Monday, and is understood the mistake was made after the flight paperwork was submitted incorrectly.

The plane, which took off from London’s City Airport, was then redirected and landed in Dusseldorf.

The member of staff added: “We apologise about that.  We don’t know where…..where the problem is but in a second (sic) and we do the best to bring you as soon as possible to Dusseldorf. Sorry.”

WDL Aviation ran the British Airways flight through a leasing deal.

Twitter joke

After the news story about the flight went viral, rival airline Ryanair attempted to poke fun at BA on Twitter, posting a photo of a ‘Geography for Dummies’ book with the caption “Hey @British_Airways, we have a present for you”.

However, the joke misfired when Twitter users responded to the budget airline, with one replying with an image of a ‘Customer Service for Dummies’.

Another Twitter user suggested that Ryanair would have just called Edinburgh Airport “Dusseldorf North”.
