Northwest Airliner overshoots airport - by 150 miles

Bizarre story, and I wonder did no passengers realise that they had passed Minneapolis.

Perhaps they thought that Delta was turning it into a Ryanair-style airline which uses airports which are not particularly close to the destination city. I remember flying to Brussels with Ryanair and looking down, thinking "hmm that is Brussels we just passed", and then flying on for quite a while before we landed in "Brussels Charleroi"- which is a long way from Brussels itself.

Just a slight mistake, huh...I'm surprised they didn't charge the passenger for the extra distance!
