Man suing Southwest Airlines over 'mental anguish' after plane landed at wrong airport.

A man is suing Southwest Airlines after the plane he was on landed at the wrong airport, causing him “mental anguish.”

The incident occurred in 2014, when Flight 4013 traveling from Chicago to Missouri landed at M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport seven miles from the intended destination of Branson Airport.

The biggest difference between the two airports is the length of the runways. M. Graham Clark Airport’s longest runway is 3,738 feet, while Branson Airport's runway is 7,140 feet long, which resulted in an abrupt landing with heavy braking, causing passengers to be tossed around and baggage to fly out of the overhead bins, the Branson Tri-Lakes News reports.
