I was on a plane connected to airplane's WiFi. I went to a website ABC.com and it redirected me to WiFi.norwegian.com which is understandable. However now I'm back home and try to access ABC.com and it still redirects to WiFi.norwegian.com. Any subpage of ABC.com works fine. Is it some sort of cache bug?

Yes, it is cached. I don't know of a convenient way to remove the saved redirect without clearing the entire cache. If you want to do that, see: How to clear the Firefox cache.
