Singapore Airlines now holds the record for the first Airbus A380 to be stuck on a grass verge. None were hurt, except for Singapore Airlines, who also suffered the ignominy of having this piece of news achieving “most popular story” on CNN’s website yesterday, no thanks to the misleading headline.
Lessee… Scheduled departure time of the flight SQ221 was 2040hrs. It was retimed to 0015hrs. The scheduled arrival in Sydney was 0715hrs, but the retimed arrival, 0850hrs.
OK, now go buy those numbers. You read it here first. Win first prize better thank me!
