The flight was delayed by an hour, and as it's a 50 minute drive from my parents house to the airport and my dad was picking me up, I called him to tell him not to leave - but he'd already gone.
I tried to get more info by looking on both airports websites, but both indicated that all was fine...which is why my dad had left already - it is only a 40 minute flight.
So, he gets to the airport, and the board states that the flight has arrived...? Hmmm...we'd possibly only just taken off at that point! He asked one of the people on the information desk, since he couldn't see me - and was assured the flight had landed, and that I'd probably be through in a minute. (Prestwick is a tiny airport, so unless someone physically hid, you couldn't miss anyone!)
Eventually the lady called him back over and said it was an error and the flight had just taken off from Dublin - the board now displaying a correct new estimated arrival time.
