This is getting old. Cadie Thompson on yet another United Airlines problem.
A United Airlines passenger thought she was going to Paris, but instead she ended up flying about 3,000 miles in the wrong direction.
Lucie Bahetoukilae went to the gate on the ticket, and United allowed her to board the plane. To San Francisco, not Paris.
Once in San Francisco, Bahetoukilae had to endure an 11-hour layover before boarding a new flight back to Paris, according to the report. Altogether, she ended up spending about 28 hours in transit.
I boarded a plane to Honolulu when a family of about one dozen people also boarded, stuffed their luggage into overhead bins and under seats, and prepared for takeoff when the flight attendant announced the plane was going to Honolulu. The whole family scrambled to get their luggage and bags and get off the plane. They had boarded the wrong plane for the wrong destination.
