They aren’t even trying at the Herald

The Herald has on its front page a story about a Fiji Airways plane making an emergency landing at Auckland Airport.



They just aren’t trying anymore. 

Either Fiji Airways bought Air New Zealand, which slipped under everyones radar, or they are just tits at their job.

The real story shows just how bad the Herald bomb is…wrong plane, wrong company.

A Fiji Airways aircraft made an emergency landing at Auckland International Airport this morning.

The plane, a 737-700, suffered an “engine defect” after take-off en-route to Suva.

Flights have been delayed at Auckland Airport as a result.

The plane landed safely, with emergency services in attendance.

Catherine Jehly said there was a “loud banging on the right side of the plane soon after takeoff” but “everyone was pretty calm on board”.

The loud bang was probably the Herald editor’s face hitting the keyboard as he realises yet another cock up will appear on Whaleoil.
