Baggage limitation to 15 kgs is a deterrant for those choosing connecting flights to and from abroad where limit is 20-23kg. What is the solution for transferring excess baggage when the flight charges are generally High and not just a near base fare for budget airline with no frills. We do not expect food but baggage difference of in tensional flight needs to be considered.
Your ground staff insist on taking the boarding card from the kiosk in front of the Counters & then have to go to the Counters for baggage drop. I feel this is double. Why not do both the usual of boarding card & baggage drop once only at the counter for all travellers other than the travellers travelling without any check in as well as hand baggage
I am a medical student with Father Muller Medical College, Mangalore. I had one of my worst experience of air travel on 19th Sunday August 2018 by Indigo Airlines from Bangalore to Mangalore. The flight was at 5-30am and I reached the Indigo Airlines counter at 4-40 am. As soon as I reached the counter the gentleman informed me with a very callous attitude that "the flight has already left". I was astonished to listen to his uncaring and absurd response since I have already web checked-in and 50 minutes before the departure time. In spite of repeatedly pleading with him, he was in no mood to consider me. Finally, after taking an affirmative step, and he allowed me to carry the check in luggage to the aircraft . . On checking with my friends circle, it is understood that, this is a regular practice in Indigo Airlines. It is also given to understand that the price of Bangalore-Mangalore sector is gone up sue to the flood situation in Kerala. And the airlines was avoiding the bonafide passengers and selling these tickets to fresh customers at a and exorbitant price. If I don't get a reasonable explanation for this uncaring attitude of Indigo Airlines staff, I will take up this on social media and also approach consumer forum for compensating the mental trauma I have gone through.

Very bad experience, I had some duty free bottles which I had checked in and clearly informed the ground staff about the fragile content. He said it will be taken care but when I reached from BLR to IXE the bottles were broken even after fragile sticker on it and when I asked the ground staff(jean) she said she will check and didnít even apologise and just walked off saying you can put a email to customer care. Highly disappointing. I had carried the same bag from BKK to BLR through Thai airways and they handled so well. Lost hopes with indigo after this experience .
