I couple years ago I was on an Virgin America flight from KSFO to KPDX, and one of the flight attendants said “welcome aboard Alaska flight 1952 with direct service to Portland, Maine!” Gasps spread across the the aircraft, and she comes on the PA no more then 10 seconds later, and she sort of corrects her self. “Sorry about that folks, we ain’t going to Maine, we’re going to Medford! Oh, wait, my bad. Portland Oregon. Sorry about the confusion!”.
An hour later, we arrive in KPDX, and the same lady comes back and says “lady’s and gentleman, welcome to Seattle! Oh hell. We’re not in Seattle.” Goes off the PA presumably to ask where we were, and comes back “sorry folks, welcome to Portland! Sorry for the confusion!”.
I though it was a joke until I talked to the pilot.
It was a real. She actually didn’t know where we were. That was pretty scary…
