Fans ask: “How big is the airport?” After 15 minutes, the soccer stars miss their flight to the game because they got lost trying to buy a coffee

FANS were left in hysterics after 15 players got lost in an airport and missed their flight – after going to buy a coffee.

LaLiga club Las Palmas face Sevilla today after travel to the game went disastrously wrong.

The Canary Islands-based team had to take a flight to mainland Spain for their away game.

But 15 players were not on board when they left after heading out for coffee.

Las Palmas, who secured promotion to the top flight last season, do not have the financial means to afford a private jet for their team.

They instead use commercial flights for their regular day trips and a large portion of the team missed their plane on Saturday.

Several went out for drinks and reportedly couldn’t find their way back to the departure gate.

The flight took off without 15 members of the team and two physiotherapists present.

A chartered jet was then sent to pick up the embarrassed stars and take them to Seville.

The bizarre situation sent fans into an uproar. One said: “How did FIFTEEN ADULTS manage to get so lost. None of them noticed?”


Another added: “This is what your dad is afraid of, that’s why he’s making you show up at the airport four hours early.”

A third replied: “Well that’s new. I hope it was good coffee.”

Mehr commented: “How big is the airport?”

It is unclear which players missed the flight, but Las Palmas’ squad includes on-loan Manchester City star Maximo Perrone, former Everton striker Sandro Ramirez and former Barcelona prodigy Munir El Haddadi.
