They say there are two certainties in life. Death and that eventually an airline will lose you luggage. Or somehow manage to ruin your flight. Thankfully that hasn’t happened to me. Yet. But even God himself isn’t exempt to these rules.

Which is when things got a little weird…
@sachin_rt We’re sorry to hear this Sachin, could you please DM us your baggage ref, full name and address so we can look into this for you?— British Airways (@British_Airways) November 13, 2015
Now I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure the last time someone asked Sachin his full name, was back in November, 1989.
But naturally, the Internet lost its shit.

And of course, when there’s talk of Sachin’s name, Maria won’t be too far behind.
