Due to a mistake by the airport staff, the tourist accidentally flew 1,450 km away. from the destination

Beverly Ellis-Hebard of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, traveled to Jamaica in the Caribbean instead of arriving in Jacksonville, Florida, due to an error by airport staff.

As Business Insider writes, the American woman was sent to the wrong plane, and she did not have her passport with her.

The woman often moves between her home in Philadelphia and her second home in Jacksonville. This time, she decided to take a scheduled Frontier Airlines flight to spend time in the sunshine state.

The problem arose when the woman decided to go to the toilet before the flight. The airline employee assured her that she had 20 minutes. However, upon returning, it turned out that the plane was already almost full, and she was rushed to board after checking the ticket. Panicking, Ellis-Hebard cut her hand while loading her carry-on luggage.

The flight attendant on the plane treated the American woman’s wound and assured her that she could relax before the flight to Jamaica.

“I would love to fly there, but I already have a beach where I live,” Beverly joked.

However, the stewardess clarified that it was not a joke at all, and the plane was flying to Jamaica.

“You enter another country without a passport. It’s bad,” added the employee of the airline.

Note that the distance between Philadelphia and Jamaica is approximately 900 miles (1,450 km). The authorities of another country allowed Ellis-Hebard to remain on the bridge between the plane and the airport, so she did not officially leave the territory of the United States.

Within hours of her arrival, she was put on the next flight back to Philadelphia. Frontier Airlines refunded the woman for her ticket and issued her a $600 voucher as compensation.
