British Airways has apologised for the inconvenience caused to Tendulkar’s family members.

“We are very sorry for the inconvenience that has been caused to our customers recent travel plans. We are directly in contact with our customer to resolve the issue,” BA spokesperson said in a statement.

As regards to the airline asking for Tendulkar’s details, it said, “To allow for the social teams to quickly resolve, an issue they require the details of the person flying which aren’t always the same as the person tweeting.” Asked about the baggage’s whereabouts, the airline spokesperson said, “The customer has all their bags.”

Earlier, angry Sachin Tendulkar fans took to twitter today when British Airways asked the cricket icon’s full name after his family members were denied seats and their baggage was wrongly tagged by the airlines to another destination.

The drama unfolded when Tendulkar, who is in the US to play in the All-Stars Cricket League, tweeted about his family’s travel woes on the British Airways flight.









Shortly after Tendulkar’s tweets, the British Airways replied, “@sachin_rt We’re sorry to hear this Sachin, could you please DM us your baggage ref, full name and address so we can look into this for you?.”

After this tweet, all hell broke loose on social media as Tendulkar fans were in no mood to forgive the airlines for their lapse of not only delivering the luggage but also not knowing the legend’s name.

Even former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah took to twitter as a Sachin fan.
