Sidney MT/Sydney Australia: The Most Charming Story Ever! (Oooops!)


A man from New York planned to fly to Sydney Australia to visit kangaroos and landed in Billings to then transfer to Sidney, Montana. Ooops! (Read the article below for details).

BILLINGS — A long-awaited dream vacation was in Kingsley Burnett’s future, a cruise departing from Sydney, Australia.

The New York man could barely contain his excitement on the first leg of his trip, until he looked out the window of his airplane. “I saw mountain top covered in white snow…At that point, I knew I was in trouble,” said 62-year-old Burnett Wednesday.

When he touched down in Billings last week, the snow and the small Cape Air jet waiting to take him to Sidney, Montana, were the giveaways that he made a mistake.

“It’s a matter of acronyms. The S-Y-D as opposed to S-D-Y. Somebody has to fix that,” he said, referring to the airport codes used for each destination (SYD is Australia, and SDY is in eastern Montana.)

Burnett said he was trying to be frugal when purchasing the tickets and should have focused more on the final destination rather than booking the cheaper flight. By: Hailey Monaco (Q2 Billings News)
