Man Sues British Airways for Sending Him to Grenada Not GranadaGeography is tough. In 2014, American dentist Edward Gamson planned himself a trip to the beautiful southern city in Spain, named Granada. He was especially excited for the trip due to his lifelong interest in Islamic art and his Spanish Jewish heritage. Despite his insistence with his travel agent that he wanted to visit Granada, Spain, imagine his surprise when he ended up on a nine hour flight to the Caribbean island of Grenada.
When British Airways refused to reimburse Gamson and his partner for the $4,500 first class tickets, he decided to sue the airline, for $34,000 in damages. Though there was likely much pain and suffering he had to endure as a result of the mixup, he still got a trip to the Caribbean!
Lesson learned: always double check your spelling (and maybe a map) when booking travel.
