Former Indian bowler, Irfan Pathan took to Twitter on Wednesday to share his bad experience while traveling to Dubai from Mumbai by Vistara Airlines. Pathan shared his ordeal and alleged that he was made to wait for more than an hour at the counter with his wife and children and that the “ground staff were rude.” As per Irfan, the airlines tried to downgrade his seating class, despite him having a confirmed ticket.

“Today, I was traveling to Dubai from Mumbai by Vistara Flight UK-201. At the check-in counter, I had a very bad experience, Vistara was involuntarily downgrading my ticket class which was a confirmed booking. I was made to wait one and a half an hour at the counter for a resolution. Along with me, my wife, my 8-month-old in fact, and 5 years old child also had to go through this.

“The ground staff were rude and giving various excuses. In fact, couple of passengers also had to go through the same experience. I don’t understand why they oversold the flight and how is this even approved by the management? I would request the concerned authorities to take immediate action on these incidents so that no one has to go through the same experience as I did,” read the cricketer’s tweet.

After the complaint from Irfan, former Indian opener and cricket expert Aakash Chopra also replied to the pacer’s statement, as he added, “Hey @airvistara, totally unexpected from you.” Irfan then replied to Chopra, revealing that all this happened despite the fact that he was carrying his 8-month-old baby in his arms.

Irfan Pathan was an integral part of the Indian team in the 2000s. He was a part of the 2007 20-20 World Cup winning team in South Africa. Pathan was awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ in the finals. He was also a part of the Indian team when they won the 2013 Champions Trophy. The 37-year-old announced his retirement from International cricket in 2020.
