WASHINGTON – A District of Columbia couple is suing British Airways after they say the airline ruined their vacation by booking them tickets to the Caribbean island of Grenada instead of Granada, Spain.
Edward Gamson and Lowell Canaday say in their lawsuit that last fall they wanted to travel from Washington to London and then to Granada, Spain. Gamson says he explained his travel plans to a British Airways agent who made the reservation.
The lawsuit says the couple made it to London, but their connecting flight went to the Caribbean, not Spain. They didn't realize the mistake until they were airborne.
A British Airways spokeswoman said in an email Wednesday that the airline does not comment on lawsuits.
The lawsuit seeks $34,000 plus court costs and other expenses.
