Weird World: Flight delayed for 11 hours after pilot lost his passport

A flight from Vietnam was delayed by 11 hours after the pilot lost his passport.

T’way Air flight TW122 was due to depart Ho Chi Minh City for Incheon in Seoul at 10.35pm on Friday, but the pilot’s mistake meant he couldn’t gain access to the airport.

The 160 passengers due to fly had to wait for a replacement pilot to be found, which wasn’t possible until the following day. The flight finally took off at 9.40am on Saturday.

The airline booked travellers into hotels and provided breakfast in the interim. “We are currently reviewing a disciplinary action for the pilot. We are also negotiating compensation measures with the passengers,” a T’way spokesperson told the press.

The airline is also investigating exactly how the pilot mislaid his travel documents.

Recently a holidaymaker stepped up to fill in for a pilot so his easyJet flight to Alicante could take off on time. Michael Bradley, who happened to be an easyJet pilot himself, offered to fly the plane to avoid a delay of several hours.
