Instead of arriving at San Jose airport in Costa Rica, Central America, her plane landed in San Juan on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico 1,300 miles away.
The newspaper reporter isn't any brighter, he's put a picture of Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria in the report instead of the Caribbean isle. :lol:

They probably used a Ryanair flight. Puerto Rico airport is about as far from Costa Rica as Dusseldorf Weeze is from Dusseldorf, but not quite as far as it is from Barcelona Girona to Barcelona.

Sadly for her easily done

Juan Santa Maria, San Jose, Costa Rica: SJO

San Juan, Puerto Rico: SJU

but the silly cow should have been able to read the departure board!

The other all time ticketing blunder, which is far harder to credit but I am reliably informed has been done, is this:

Kingsford Smith Airport, Sydney, Australia: SYD

Sydney Airport, Newfoundland YQY

Still like the one about the two MUFC fans who wanted to see their team play Deportivo la Coruña in NW Spain.
Problem. No direct flights.
D/S Solution. Flight to Santiago and take a coach northwards. Easy.
Fans Solution. Book flight to Santiago but not check which one.
Result. Arrived in Santiago Chile in time to watch the match on TV in a bar.

And they didn't notice Departure Boards, nor difference in flight times (2hrs -12 hrs), nor costs?
Bet I could guess who fluffed geography at school.

Don't want to be picky but YQY is Sydney - Nova Scotia - so you'd be in the wrong place too :D

Sounds like an urban myth from my neck of the woods; trying to sort a flight for one of our customers to Tirana (Albania) only for booking agent to organise flight to Tehran (Iran). Semantics really, either reception committee would have been equally unimpressed with said low-life.

I know the airport at San Jose, Costa Rica, quite well and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, even an airhead blonde bimbo. Especially not having to spend an entire night there!

Me too! It was where I was informed that my luggage had been seperated from me in fecking Zurich. The shopping mall in CR is a sh1t hole as well! AND I had to go to Bulgaria as sson as I got back to Balkaniaistan. My shreddies turned up 3 weeks later.

Oh I really enjoyed that rant - Cheers CD :D

It astounds me that someone can be so dumb. Furthermore, why the fcuk did she publicise it, demonstrating to the nation what a fckwit she is!!

Now, i can understand that the travel agent made a mistake but surely she would have checked the tickets or booking confirmation, wouldn't she? You would think alarm bells would ring when she read the departure board? FFS even the pilot comes on intercom and confirms the destination.

Another thread asked what's wrong with this country. Dumb blonde fckwits, that's what.

You're more than welcome Ricky! I was rushed through the airport with a diplomatic escort and it was STILL shi'ite so can't imagine how bad it must have been for you plebs! :D
