A 21-year-old Englishman, who had the misfortune to share the same name and date of birth as a naughty little one, had the nasty surprise of being mistakenly banned from an airline on the same day he was supposed to board the flight.
“I was disgusted. I couldn’t understand,” the young man from Cheshire, near Liverpool, explained in an interview with “The Mirror” program on Saturday.
Kieran Harris, 21, couldn’t believe his eyes when he received an email on May 25th, abruptly telling him he had been banned from the airline EasyJet for 10 years, due to his alleged “disruptive behaviour”.
“Be aware that future attempts to book a flight will result in an increased penalty,” reads the email, which was received hours before his flight and shared by UK media.
Bad luck: He could have been sentenced to 12 weeks in prison in 2021 for “aggressive and abusive behavior” on a flight.
“We booked the trip a month in advance, and checked in online over a week ago, so they had plenty of time to contact us,” he said. The Mirror”.
Fortunately, the young man had managed to take his trip to the extreme after spending the day trying to establish his identity with the company, which eventually realized his mistake and apologized.
But that’s not all, since last May, Kieran Harris had again mixed up when the police broke into his room early in the morning, before realizing in turn that they did not have the right person.
They explain to him that someone with the same name and birthday, who also lives in the Northwest, has committed a crime […] They said the information they received led them to his home. “It was really scary: very painful,” said his mother, Chyna Harris.
The young man was considering changing his name, as well as turning to lawyers for legal advice.
