Published

A passenger who was banned for trying to open a jet door at 30,000ft claims he mistook it for the toilet.
James Gray was fined 600 euros by KLM after the incident on an Edinburgh to Amsterdam to flight, and was told he can’t fly with them for five years.
He says airline staff accused him of trying to open the door of the plane, but he insists he only touched the handle after confusing it for the door to the toilet.

Mr Gray, from Alloa, was escorted from the KLM flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam the moment it touched down at Schiphol Airport. He was whisked away to a nearby detention centre where he spent the night before he was fined £434 (600 euros).

But when he went to fly home he said KLM staff refused to let him board and said he was banned from flying with them for five years.
He only made it back after a pal paid for him to travel with a rival airline.

Mr Gray said: “The crew told me to stay in my seat and I was to be arrested when the plane landed.
“I tried to explain it was a simple mistake. It was a misunderstanding. The police came and arrested me. They weren’t too friendly.”

Mr Gray claims he spoke to a translator by phone as he was being interviewed by Dutch cops.
He also had to borrow money after the fine wiped out his holiday funds.
He said: “I was charged and fined 600 euros.

“I only had 750 euros with me so I had to borrow money for the rest of the stay over there.” Mr Gray said he doesn’t know if he will face any further action over the incident but is adamant he wouldn’t dream of opening a plane door on purpose.
“I realise the danger of that sort of thing,” he added.

A spokeswoman for Schiphol Airport and a spokesperson for the Royal Dutch Border Police both refused to comment. KLM said a passenger had been handed over to authorities due to “his misbehaviour” on-board.

Ed Sheeran, a British megastar, will testify in court to defend himself against claims that he plagiarized Marvin Gaye for his international hit song “Thinking Out Loud.”

Ed Sheeran, a top-charting artist and internationally successful pop star, has been informed by a federal judge that he must go to trial in response to claims that he plagiarized Marvin Gaye’s 1973 smash song “Let’s Get It On” on his 2014 track “Thinking Out Loud.”

In his application to the court, Ed Sheeran argued that the copyright claims should be rejected because they were “baseless” and “far too frequent.”

The plaintiffs claim that Ed Sheeran and his writing partner Amy Wadge copied and exploited, without authorization or credit the Marvin Gaye song, “including but not limited to the melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bass line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation, and looping.” They are seeking $100 million (£90 million) in damages.

A lawsuit was recently filed against Ed Sheeran and his songwriting partners John McDaid and Steven McCutcheon over claims that a chorus from their song “Shape of You” was lifted verbatim from Ross O’Donoghue and Sami Chokri 2015 single “Oh Why.”

The High Court Judge ruled that the imitation was “not purposefully nor unconsciously” made during the trial that took place in March 2022. Ed and his co-defendants were given £900,000 in costs.

Ed wrote on his Instagram page following the court decision that he hoped it would put an end to more unfounded claims. Ed Sheeran is not yet getting his desire, though, as he must deal with another lawsuit.
