Edward Gamson used frequent flyer miles on a first class ticket to Granada, Spain. Instead, he found himself on a plane to Grenada in the Caribbean.

He used a pile of frequent flyer miles for first- class British Air tickets for him and his partner and then, after a stopover in London, found himself on a plane to Grenada, in the Caribbean. Not clear who mixed up Granada and Grenada, he's suing British Air. But surprising, it doesn't happen more often. It's MORNING EDITION.
