A British Airways flight bound for Dusseldorf has landed in hot water after landing in Edinburgh by mistake due to an incorrect flight plan submitted to pilots, prompting instant ridicule on social media.
The flight had been redirected to Dusseldorf and landed safely, a BA spokesman confirmed on Monday. German firm WDL Aviation was operating the flight and were responsible for the aircraft and cabin crew.
