A group of passengers landed 600 miles away from their intended destination after being placed on the wrong flight.
On Monday, 34 passengers were informed their 5 pm Nextjet flight to Gothenburg, Sweden, was delayed due to bad weather conditions. At 8 pm, a plane arrived and the group scanned their boarding passes and got on the flight, The Local reports.
According to The Local, Nextjet airline was forced to cancel its flight to Gothenburg, but it did not relay the information to the waiting passengers or the airport.
The passengers who unexpectedly arrived in Luleå were surprised, but not overly concerned.
“I just laughed. What can you do?” passenger Roger Leirvik told Aftonbladet.
The 34 were not the only ones affected by the mix-up, though. A handful of other passengers that were supposed to be on the flight were left behind at the Sundsvall airport where they were told their flight had been canceled, The Local reports.
Nextjet apologized for the incident and provided housing accommodations for those stuck in Luleå.
“It appears to have been a huge miss in communications between the airport in Sundsvall and us,” said Nextjet marketing director Henning Lindberg to The Local.
The passengers were flown to Gothenburg on Tuesday.
