I Wonder If They Rented A Fjord

At the airport?

THREE Norwegian tourists who had planned a holiday on the Greek island of Rhodes landed in the southwestern French town of Rodez yesterday after mistyping the destination on an internet booking form.
The trio appears to have been surprised when their Ryanair flight landed in Rodez, which has a mediaeval town centre but no beach resorts.
“We were told of the mistake when the three tourists arrived at the airport and we tried to make their stay as agreeable as possible before they decided to return to Norway,” the Rodez tourism chief Florence Taillefer said.

  1. Maybe they were pinin’ for the fjords.

    Apparently the internet form was all Greek to them.

    I hate to say this, but I fear if it was one of my countrymen or countrywomen who made that mistake, they’d most likely be trying to figure out whom they could sue.
    I will say I’ve known many cases where people bound for Bloomington, Indiana wound up in Bloomington, Illinois (or vice versa). Both cities have a state university, both cities sound alike…particularly nerve-racking if you’re going for an interview at IU and you wind up at ISU…(I also know cases of the PERSON getting to the right Bloomington, but their luggage going to the other one…)

    Same thing happens to people who want to go to Rochester, MN, but the airlines decide that their luggage really should go to Rochester, NY.
