British Airways flight BA3271 lands in Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf by mistake

A British Airways flight BA3271 was suppose to fly to Dusseldorf in Germany but instead it landed in Edinburgh by mistake, after the flight paperwork was submitted incorrectly.

When flight BA3271 landed and announced “Welcome to Edinburgh”, only then did the passengers realized the error.

“As pleasant as Edinburgh is this time of year, we’re sorry that passengers travelling to Dusseldorf on BA3271, operated by WDL Aviation, initially landed in the Scottish capital, rather than their intended destination. This was due to an incorrect flight plan submitted by WDL.” London City Airport tweeted.

One passenger on board the flight named Son Tran tweeted to British Airways on twitter, asking British Airways to explain why the had landed in Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf, and says it felt “like an honest mistake”.

Flight BA3271 started at London’s City Airport, was then redirected and landed in Dusseldorf. WDL Aviation ran the BA flight through a leasing deal.

British Airways said it was working with WDL Aviation to find out why it filed the wrong flight plan.

In a statement, British Airways said: “We have apologised to customers for this interruption to their journey and will be contacting them all individually.”

“At no time has the safety of passengers been compromised. We flew the passengers on the flight with number BA3271 to Dusseldorf after the involuntary stopover in Edinburgh,” it said.

British Airways declined to say how many passengers were affected by the mistake.

We at Kupocity feel that perhaps next time before boarding your flight, check with the crew where they are flying to.
