Airport? That's Not An Airport
The captain of a KLM flight took his passengers on a 1,200-mile detour after refusing to land at a new airport in India because he had never heard of it. The pilot reportedly claimed he knew nothing about Hyderabad's new Rajiv Gandhi International airport, but airport officials insisted all airlines had been notified of it opening on March 14. However, a report in the Times of India revealed a number of pilots had complained their flight computers did not recognise the new airport.
