Surfer, 19, ended up in Sweden instead of France after bungling Ryanair changed gate at the last minute.
-Toby Donachie said staff checked his ticket at the gate and on the plane but the error was STILL not spotted .
-Cabin crew told him they didn't know there was an extra passenger when they did a head count as a child was hiding.
A professional surfer who thought he was flying to the south of France to go training was shocked when he discovered he had touched down in Sweden.
Toby Donachie, 19, was supposed to be flying to Biarritz with Ryanair, but ended up boarding a flight with the same airline to Malmo, in southern Sweden.
The mistake came after a last-minute gate change and Mr Donachie only realised he was in the wrong aircraft when he heard an in-flight announcement.
The teenager, from Padstow, Cornwall, said his tickets were checked twice before he got on board, once by the staff at the gate and again on the plane.
He said: 'Half-way there, there was a call saying we’re flying over Denmark.
'The tickets were looked at. My boarding pass said Biarritz, and yet I was on a plane to Malmo, Sweden.
'The cabin crew just felt really bad for me when I told them. They were worried about me and super helpful.'
Mr Donachie added: 'The cabin crew told me that when they did the head count, a child was hiding on the plane; so the crew didn’t notice that there was an extra passenger.'
Once he arrived in Sweden, he was put on another flight back to the UK.
The airline paid for a hotel and gave him a new ticket to Biarritz the following day.
