Spelling mix up lands airline in the middle of a lawsuit


GRANADA, Spain – An American man is suing an airline after he was sent to a place he didn’t want to go.

According to Time, Edward Gamson wanted to head to the Spanish town of Granada.

So, he called British Airways to book the vacation and began packing.

What should have been a two-hour flight from London ended after nine hours on a plane.

When he got off the plane, he was nowhere near Spain.

Instead, Gamson had flown to the island of Grenada in the Caribbean.

He asked for a refund from the airline because of the one letter mistake but was refused.

Gamson is now suing British Airways for $34,000  because of the mix up.
