Good news! The 147 passengers on flight 188 will not be charged extra for the additional unscheduled 150 travel miles.

What were the pilots of the Airbus A320 carrying 147 passengers doing at 37,000 feet that was so distracting that it caused them to overshoot its destination by 150 miles? FAA officials are still investigating, but this exclusive photo suggests they hotwired a cockpit monitor and were busy surfing the web.

"We stumbled upon a blog that was so intriguing, we couldn't turn away. It was pure genious!," stated the co-pilot.

As an aside, I've caught cabbies attempting to make similar circuitous routes from the airport to my hotel.
