7/11/2009 – Now Boarding US Airways Flight 743 to Filadelfia…yup Filadelfia
Every once in a while someone will send me a photo that causes me to crack up, well a week ago one of these photos found its way into my e-mail box.
Every traveller seems to enjoy odd moments, unusual signs and the ever popular past time of finding mistakes airlines have made. Well the photo that landed in showing US Airways Flight 743 boarding for “Filadelfia” not only had me laughing, but also wondering where the photo had been shot.
So, after a week of research…going through every flight numbered as US743 in the past few weeks to match up a 12:00pm departure from Gate E74…I found a match! This photo was shot at Aeroport de Barcelona (BCN) and apparently this spelling of Philadelphia (PHL) is common for flights departing BCN due to the Spanish spelling of the city.
None-the-less, this photo made me chuckle for a number of reasons…do flight departing for JFK International Airport show “Nueva York”?
