The Lufthansa Web Site Called Me A Dummkopf

Whatīs funnier (at least to me) is that the system did this in English, not German.



Maybe it thinks a one way MUC BRU flight in business class is not a good idea

This is pretty funny. Someone forgot to give a proper text tag to the error. I guess "Error, Dummy" (with a comma) would make it more offensive.

I am not sure why, but this reminds me of the navigation system that you could get with one of the trendier small cars, with an "offensive" option that would get upset with you, should you not follow the navigation instructions.

Well, some people would agree with the error message that paying 500€ to experience the NEK product for a 45min flight segment isnīt very clever.

I'm afraid to say this text features heavily in my daily work life.
