MALMO, Sweden — A British professional surfer flying to Biarritz in the South of France ended up in the slightly less popular surfing destination of Malmo in Sweden when Ryanair let him board the wrong plane.
Toby Donachie, 19, got on the flight by accident due to a last-minute gate change at Stansted. Cabin crew checked his ticket twice, but failed to spot it was for Biarritz. Toby only realised he was flying to the wrong country when the Ryanair pilot announced they were cruising over Denmark.
Toby said: “Halfway there, there was a call saying ‘we’re flying over Denmark’.
“The cabin crew just felt really bad for me when I told them. They were superhelpful.” — Agencies
