Maria Nieves’ daughter sent her 85-year-old mother an index card with her name, flight information and final destination prior to her holiday trip. The index card wasn’t just a precaution though.
Nieves had accidentally flown to the wrong location before, and the family felt equipping her with this information could prevent it in the off chance it might happen again. It didn’t.
Even with this information in her possession, available for any airport employee to cross check, instead of ending up in Fort Meyers, Fla., Nieves landed in Pittsburgh, Pa., Sunday night.
She had flown to the wrong destination — again.
