On Sunday 9/12/18, I had a connection flight with Air India (4. 05pm). After collecting my bags from Oman Air . I reached air India check in desk in Hyd airport 48 minutes prior to my check in time. By this time the counter was closed (earlier than what the air lines say). There was no one to pay attention to my misery. My te keg was wasted. I asked if they can sent me on the next flight. Air lines didn' t facilitate this either. I was travelling on my own after 13 hours of night journey this is the senseless reception I received from Air India. I had to buy another ticket with Spice jet later who allowed me to buy a ticket and check in 40 minutes before the scheduled time. Funny thing is . Two days before me my parents used the same flight. It took off 10 minutes earlier than the scheduled time and arrived in VGA 25 minutes. I hope it did not leave poor passengers like me . Behind . Just to win the race . And say we are happy to announce "we arrived 25 mins ahead of the scheduled time " which is worst than being late. They are closing check in desks before time and not facilitating travellers like me. Very frustrating. I demand response and redress from Air India. I do not have to suffer like this. My holiday started with stress caused by Air India.
Good service, clean and well maintained but precooking orders should be preferred to serve first and then sale of food should be taken up later. Delay in flight s should be limited or delay in flight should be preformed and not on spot.
1)Vijayawada Airport: The bus to the craft from airport lounge, was carelessly parked by the driver with alighting side away from the exit gate. The alighting passengers had to go all round the bus to get in. And this on a day it was raining a downpour . 2) The craft cabin has enough house flies to bother us but the crew seemed least bothered even when brought to their attention!
Came to India and they won't accept the luggage from international flight. Was asked to pay 10500 for 2 check-in bags. So I cancelled my ticket which was 2700. I was told by indigo representative at their check-in desk that she would cancel and refund the ticket . . Few days later I called the customer service to be told that the flight was not cancelled and so I would only be refunded no show refund even though I was 3 hrs early.
The website clearly says I can take 30kg or my international baggage allowance (whichever is lower) and yet the folks who help at the counter (especially the manager) is so adamant about making up his own rules. The attitude and arrogance this guy shows towards the passengers is unseen. My only mistake is to take this flight since this is the first available one from Hyd to vga and yet they are late most of the time.
