As for making sure passengers are on the right plane: the other day on my flight from CVG to GSO, the F/A made an annoucement saying "This is Comair flight 5072 from Cincinnati to Greensboro. Any passengers on board who are not traveling to Greensboro, please come forward at this time." In the times I've heard this annoucement, I've never seen anyone come forward.

I've been on so many flights alone and I can't understand how people managed to get on different flight. Its not that hard to figure out. When boarding they always mention the destination over PA system so how did the uncle couldn't hear the calling over the PA system?. Destination on boarding ticket is so visible I don't know how passenger agent didn't see that clearly.

I am guessing this was the kind of area where multiple express flights leave without clearly designated gates like you would have for bigger jets with jetways. My uncle's friend actually went to an aircraft he was guided towards...

However, I have been on a flight where the wrong destination was announced by the FO. We were holding for takeoff at YVR, on an AC Jazz flight YVR-YYJ. The FO came on and told us our flight time, altitude, and all that. At the end of her announcements, she said "Thank you for choosing AC Jazz, and enjoy the short flight to Vancouver". Pause... "Uh... that would be Victoria, sorry!".
