Twitter is flooded with abuses for British Airlines. Reason: They dared to follow their regular procedure and ask Sachin Tendulkar for his full name, on the micro-blogging site.
Sachin had tweeted his disappointment to the airlines with the hashtag #BAdserviceBA. In reply, they asked him to DM his details – Baggage reference, full name and address. While, this is an everyday affair for the airline, today it turned out to be a terrible crime.

This tweet exchange took place a few hours ago and since then, British Airlines has been accused of committing the crime of not knowing the God of Cricket.

A few people did tweet in favor of the airlines, but the majority remained on the opposite side.
Whats wrong is asking a full name. One should be proud to tell his/her full name. British Airways — Saniya Mirza (@BeingRasika) November 13, 2015
Nice to know British Airways treats everybody equally — Abhijit Majumder (@abhijitmajumder) November 13, 2015

Sachin Tendulkar is no doubt, one of the finest Indian cricket players. But, can such an outrage be justified?
