Dallas Mavericks’ star Luka Doncic rips airline after ticket fiasco

This is how you treat the NBA’s Rookie of the Year?

Lufthansa, Germany’s largest airline, is taking it on the chin after Dallas Mavericks’ young star Luka Doncic posted a negative review of his ordeal with the airline Tuesday night.

Doncic claims Lufthansa did not honor his business class tickets for himself and family on his return trip from Los Angeles.

“Never been treated so poorly before by an airline,” Doncic posted on Twitter. “We’ve been reassigned to economy class, no idea why and they gave us back only the 20% of our money from the business ticket.”

That seems pretty lame of the airline. Never mind who Doncic is. Apparently the gate agent didn’t know or care.

Doncic and his family were returning from Los Angeles after he won the NBA Rookie of the Year award Monday night.

The post had over 2,500 likes on Twitter in less than 30 minutes.
