According to CNN:


A 21-year-old German tourist who wanted to visit his girlfriend in the Australian metropolis Sydney landed 13,000 kilometers (8,077 miles) away near Sidney, Montana, after mistyping his destination on a flight booking Web site.

Dressed for the Australian summer in T-shirt and shorts, Tobi Gutt left Germany on Saturday for a four-week holiday.

Instead of arriving "down under", Gutt found himself on a different continent and bound for the chilly state of Montana.


Gutt's airline ticket routed him via the U.S. city of Portland, Oregon, to Billings, Montana. Only as he was about to board a commuter flight to Sidney -- an oil town of about 5,000 people -- did he realize his mistake.



And the mother said "He is usually good with computers"... Perhaps bad at attention?

I recall few years ago an American couple ended up in Auckland NZ....... they were supposed to be going to Oakland CA. It wasnt til mid flight that they realised they were on the wrong flight. Must have been the accent of the flight announcer.

I can recall an episode of Full House where Stephanie sneaked onto a plane to get an autograph from a rock star. Unfortunately she didn't manage to get off the plane, and she thought that she was going to Oakland but ended up in Auckland.

Some people just don't get it. You can learn everything about life from Full House.
