Dug this thread up in a Google search, because the front page article on FT today made me doubt myself.

Sadly, not so hard to believe that the FT admins/editors/whoever didn't catch DBX in both the scrolling headline AND body text of the story...

DBX is a common "error" but not a big problem. You will have one if you want to go to ICN- Seoul and put in INC - Yinchuan as both are in the EK network

What...? I've never seen those two mixed up, and IMO it would be difficult to make that mistake.

I once had a check in agent at SIN routing SIN-HND-GMP, try to check bags through to SEL.
SEL is actually for all airports in and around Seoul.
