Chris Gayle vented out his frustration at Emirates Airline on Monday for not allowing him to board a flight despite having a confirmed ticket.

Taking to Twitter, the West Indies allrounder on Monday blasted the airline for not keeping a proper passenger count.

“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 wrote.
