Oh dear...

There's an old tale about something similar, supposed to be true.

 

A busy BEA flight that had already done several sectors that day left Heathrow and called the tower:

 

"Beeline xxyyzz cleared to Glasgow."

 

A pause then the tower replied:

 

Beeline xxyyzz goes to Edinburgh."

 

Another pause with an unintelligible conversation from the cockpit then back comes a cheery voice from that cockpit:

 

"Ah, roger Heathrow, we'll check with our passengers and see where they have tickets to..."

 

🙂

 

Edinburgh is nicer than Dusseldorf anyway   🙂

 

Cheers
