Have you ever wanted to take a trip to a galaxy far, far away?
I mean. who hasn’t?
Heathrow Airport in London were offering out-of-this-world destinations in celebration of Star Wars Day on May 4, according to Mashable.
Check out their departures board, which shows how they decided to get in on the action.
Good morning from Heathrow. The force is strong with us today and we’ve got some special new routes. Will you be travelling to galaxies near… or far, far away? #Maythe4th #MayTheFourth #MayThe4thBeWithYou #StarWarsDay pic.twitter.com/B9IcnMOMxC

Among the 10 Star Wars-themed destination was Jakku, which was delayed due to a sandstorm; Kashyyykk (crossbows had to be checked in at the gate); and Hoth, which was awaiting clearance of snow from the destination’s runway.
Luckily, the ever-reliable Flight R2D2 to Tatooine was on time – honestly, I’ve always wanted to check out the Mos Eisley Cantina.
Alderaan, though? Cancelled. No reason why, I’m afraid.
Star Wars fans had a field day:
I’m hysterical to the levels that I don’t even think Sue can sort. My Alderaan has been cancelled. It’s light years away and the next flight isn’t for a year

Any information on the cancelled Alderaan flight?

These are the important questions, people!
Still, there were no available flights to far-flung, exotic locations like Utapau, Mustafar or Kalee. Clearly, these weren’t the destinations that flyers were looking for.
