No April fool’s Joke: American tourist landed in Iceland by mistake

US tourist Russel Trocano planned to travel from US to Thórshöfn, the capital city of Faroe Islands. He supposed to change the plane in Reykjavík and then in Akureyri where he was finally supposed to take a plane to Thórshöfn. He was surprised when he finally landed in Langanes peninsula (Iceland) instead of Faroe Islands.

The airport staff couldn’t help him while thinking his friend who booked the flight only monkeyed him. But finally they realized that it is a big misunderstanding.
Trocano took a flight back to Akureyri where he decided to stay instead of going to Faroe Islands.
Airline Air Iceland like amend for his lost trip to Faroe Islands devised him a ticket to Grímsey Island.

Trucano told to Morgunbladid that he never thought the airplane ticket could be so expensive without even taking him out of the country. The cost of the one way ticket from Reykjavík to Thórshöfn is approximately 20 000 ISK (170 €).
