A Nigerian airline has left its passengers in distress after ‘mistakenly’ landing in Asaba airport instead of Abuja where passengers booked.
A Twitter user @dawisu who disclosed this called out the airline for carelessness and wasting the time of its customers.
According to the passenger, the flight left Lagos State for Abuja only to land in Asaba as a result of a wrong flight plan handed to the pilot.
Sharing a picture of the passengers clearly infuriated, the Nigerian man mocked the airline for probably landing them in another state as the flight took off a second time.
“Nigeria my country. We departed Lagos about an hour ago on @flyunitedng to Abuja, and upon arrival, the cabin crew confidently announced that we’ve arrived Abuja, only for us to realize that we landed in Asaba. Apparently, our pilot was given wrong flight plan from Lagos 🤣🙆♂️.

We are departing Asaba now, I pray we don’t land in Osogbo next! 🤣🙆♂️,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, the development has generated mixed reactions from Nigerians.
