AND FINALLY: All aboard for the Death Star

As The Sun put it on Saturday: “Passengers at Heathrow were baffled this morning when they got to the airport and saw that they could board a flight to the Death Star.”

A closer look at the departures board (below) revealed flights for Tattooine, the ice planet Hoth (delayed owing to snow on the runway) and Kashyyyk (through Gate WOOK 1E).

Passengers for the Death Star were warned to allow extra time for boarding and advised this was “possibly a trap”.

Saturday, in case you missed it, was Star Wars Day.

Who said airports were dull? Someone up there clearly has a sense of humour.
