The flying experience, just great aint it?

It's bad enough when you arrive at your flight destination only to find your luggage whent to another destinatiion, but it has just got worse - you are in the wrong airport

Angolan pilot lands at wrong airport

Angola's flag carrier TAAG, already banned from flying to Europe, said Friday it had suspended a pilot and his co-pilot for landing at the wrong airport in Lusaka, the capital of Zambia. Skip related content

The pilot landed the Boeing 737 at Lusaka City Airport when he should have landed at Lusaka International Airport during a regular stopover from Harare to Luanda on April 17, TAAG said in a statement.

"Because this is a serious incident, Angola's Aviation Authority and TAAG have opened an investigation into the matter," it said.

"TAAG regrets the grief this has caused to passengers and reiterates its promise to deliver a service with the highest security standards."

The state carrier was banned from EU airspace in 2007, the same year one of its planes crashed, killing six people on board. The government fired TAAG's board last year and created a commission to investigate and improve safety.

Angola expects the airline to be allowed to fly to Europe later this year.
