Michael Slater: Former Australian cricketer sorry after being kicked off Qantas flight

Former Australian cricket star and commentator Michael Slater has apologised after being kicked off a flight for being “disruptive”.

According to reports, the batsman had been arguing with two female friends on Sunday while boarding the Qantas flight from Sydney to Wagga Wagga in New South Wales.

In a statement, a Qantas spokesman confirmed a male passenger was asked to leave the flight “for being disruptive”.

“He complied with the crew’s request,” he added.

In a statement to Macquarie Sports Radio, Slater said: “I apologise for the inconvenience this caused other passengers on the flight.”

However, he and his management team denied a further claim he had locked himself in the plane’s toilet following the incident.

Slater is currently a commentator for the Seven Network in Australia.

The former batsman was part of the Australian cricket squad from 1993 to 2001, playing 74 Tests.
