In court documents, Edward Gamson said he booked a first-class flight from Washington Dulles International Airport to Granada, Spain, via London last September for him and his partner. But he said British Airways instead put the two on a flight to Grenada, an island in the Caribbean, some 4,000 miles from his intended destination.
