Airline Howler Sends Family 2,500 Miles Off Course

A FAMILY thought they were heading for a holiday in Lanzarote until the plane landed and the hostess said: "Welcome to Turkey."

Charles Coray, wife Tanya and daughter Phoebe, nine, were given the wrong boarding pass when they checked in at Cardiff International Airport.

Instead of the Canary Islands, they found themselves in Bodrum airport, Turkey - 2,500 miles away.
