British Airways Flight delayed by over 3 hours by landing in Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf by mistake

British Airways flight #BA3271 to Dusseldorf  in Germany landed in Edinburgh in Scotland by mistake.

Apparently the wrong flight plan was filed.

British Airways apologised to all their passengers who only realised the error when it was announced over the aircraft broadcast system that they had arrived at their destination.

Having been asked who wanted to go to Dusseldorf the whole plane full of passengers raised their hands.

The plane then sat on the tarmac for two-and-a-half-hours before continuing with the flight.
