Editors Note: We apologize that the original version of this post was inaccurate. The writer accepted at face value an external report from a trusted news supplier that was incorrect, backed by public data (flight tracking data) that confirmed strangely that a flight was seriously overdue. The story was corrected shortly after it went live, although a cached version of the original may have been shown to some readers. We will be implementing a review to consider if there is a way to avoid errors like this in the future.
