A Sri Lankan cricket player on a British Airways flight allegedly tried to open the cabin door in mid-flight. Apparently, he struggled to open the door for about two minutes because he confused it with the door to the bathroom. Did we mention that is said to have been drunk? Yeah, we didn’t really need to say it, you guys are smart like that.
As the man struggled to open an airplane door for two minutes the rest of his team leapt into action. And by leapt into action, we mean they only managed to yell at him to stop. Hopefully, they’re better at playing cricket than they are at dealing with emergency situations.
Flight attendants eventually realized what was going on and kindly pointed him in the right direction, which he ignored by falling asleep on a little girl’s cot.
The cricket player’s name wasn’t released and the crew called it in as minor incident so no arrests were made. The Sri Lankan team went on to play the West Indies and lost by six wickets… whatever the heck those are. If you actually know the intricate rules of cricket, there isn’t any room left in your head for other things like, say, knowing a airplane cabin door from a toilet.
