Gayle furious with airlines after not allowing to board flight
West Indies batsman Chris Gayle had to take another flight after the Emirates airlines did not allow him to board flight despite having a confirmed ticket.
Chris Gayle is currently in UAE and featuring for Kings XI Punjab in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). He missed out on a place in the starting XI in their opening game against Delhi Capitals, but the men in red will be looking to give him some games.
However, the Windies batsman had to be in some quite of hassle due to the Emirates airlines. Gayle claimed the airlines made a mistake in the passenger count and did not allow him to board the flight despite having a confirmed ticket.
He vented out his frustration on his twitter handle and informed that he has to take another flight now which will be economy class instead of business.
“So disappointed @emirates, I have a confirmed flight and they gonna tell me that they are over booked, WTF! Not only that, @emirates want me to travel economy when it’s a business class ticket – so now I have to travel on a later flight! Just ridiculous @emirates! Bad experience,” he tweeted.
It is still a question when Gayle will be given an opportunity to play this season. But he has a chance to feature for West Indies this November in the shortest format of the game as they will up against Afghanistan for three ODIs and T20Is.
