In a mid-flight email, airline passengers were informed that their connecting flight to the British Open had been canceled.
- A group of passengers heading from Austin to London to attend the British Open over the weekend received an email telling them their connecting flight had been cancelled -- well after their first flight had already left the ground.
- The group was scheduled to land at London's Heathrow Airport, where they were supposed to take a connecting British Airways flight to Edinburgh, CNN reports. However, about halfway between Austin and London, the following email arrived: "We were unable to rebook your trip from LHR to EDI. Please call to book a new flight." Unfortunately, no one in the group actually saw the email until after they'd landed in London.
- What's more is none of the golf fans were able to book a new flight, they say. They ended up taking a train to the British Open, arriving 12 hours late -- without their luggage. Officials with British Airways have not yet commented on the snafu.
