Nitwit News – January 13

A Southwest Airlines flight from Chicago’s Midway Airport was scheduled to land at Branson Airport in Missouri on Sunday night. Instead, the Boeing 737-700 touched down at Taney County airport — about seven miles away, and with a runway significantly shorter. Taney County airport doesn’t normally handle big jets. Its runway is about half the length of the Branson airport — 3,738 feet compared to 7,140 feet. That required the pilot to do a lot of heavy braking as soon as the jet touched down. The Federal Aviation Administration has launched an investigation on the mix up.

Kevin Jones and his partner Jeanette were thrilled when they snagged a couple of cheap flights from England to the Caribbean. But when they arrived at the Birmingham, England, airport they were turned away. Turns out the tickets were cheap because they had accidentally booked a flight from Birmingham, Alabama, to the Caribbean.
