You say Grenada, I say Granada

Plane
TonyYao/Thinkstock

An American dentist is suing British Airways because they took him 4,000 miles away from where he told them he wanted to go. You see, there’s a Caribbean island named Grenada. Then there’s Granada, Spain. He wanted to go to Granada. Not Grenada.

“I made it absolutely clear to the booking agent I wanted to go to Granada in Spain. Why on earth would I want to go to Grenada in the Caribbean if I was flying back to America from Lisbon?” He says he even provided them with the actual airport codes, so he may have a good case. Unfortunately, he boarded the plane not realizing the one letter difference at the gate, assuming everything was set therefore just not paying close attention I suppose. After the plane was already in the air is when he realized the mistake.

There was an in-flight tracking system on the plane and he knew something had gone horribly wrong when the flight path shown veered away from Europe, and what was supposed to be a two hour flight turned into a nine hour flight landing him 4,000 miles from his intended destination. British Airways has refused to refund him his $4,500, so he’s suing them for $34,000.
