Last week, a 29-year-old Mexican passenger was supposed to return home from a vacation on Volaris.
The young woman named Marijose Gamboa was supposed to fly from Guadalajara (GDL) to Tuxtla Gutiérrez (TGZ), but accidentally ended up in Seattle.
According to Gamboa, the airline checked her boarding pass before entering the plane headed to Chiapas, telling her to make another line. She unknowingly entered a Seattle-bound plane instead, finding “her seat” was already taken. A flight attendant checked her boarding pass again, and simply gave her another empty window seat.
Then, other weird things started to happen. The passenger still had two hours to go on the flight when they gave her a customs declaration form. Gamboa describes, “I asked myself, ‘Why do I have to fill out this form?’” Even more, she doesn’t have a passport, so she couldn’t properly complete the paperwork.
The passenger told a flight attendant she couldn’t fill out the form because she didn’t have a passport. When asked about it, Gamboa replied, “It’s a national flight.”
After a very confusing moment, everyone realized she was accidentally headed to the United States.
