I "missed" the flight, so what is there to say

3 weeks ago
Mode of Transport: Flight

I had booked this flight departing at 9:55 pm from Bangalore to Chennai at what I consider full fare at Rs. 3107 including GST. On the day of the flight, I tried to check in online at around 4 pm. The website required me to select the seat in order to check in online. When I expanded the seat selection option, there were no free seats available. Only 2-3 upgrade seats were available at a price of Rs. 600. I felt it is unfair to charge a customer for web check-in and did not proceed. Faced with heavy traffic on the way to the airport, I tried to check in again at around 7:30 pm. This time, regardless of the price, there were no seats available to select from for online check in. I reached the airport at 9:10 pm and rushed to the kiosk outside. When I entered the PNR number, it said I need to go to the counter. I cleared the security line at the door and rushed to the counter . . Here, despite my urgency, an agent took her own sweet time logging into the computer and then took my PNR to check. After several minutes, she said that the counter is now closed and you cannot fly. When I tried to reason with her that I reached the airport on time, the counter staff rudely said you're late and I can't help you. I asked for the manager and no one was available. The time was still only 9:15 pm. Another agent sitting nearby, who had watched the entire interaction, said that she was the one who closed the counter after making an announcement seeking Chennai passengers. This means the agent who interacted with me, and the agent who closed the counter, were both fully aware of my status when I reached the counter. They made me wait precious several minutes before checking the status of my ticket and confirming that I cannot fly. This makes me feel that closing the counter without any humanitarian consideration, and delaying a marginally late passenger intentionally, is being used as a strategy to handle overbooking. If SpiceJet staff was really concerned about a passenger missing a flight, they could have at least made an attempt to help I feel that SpiceJet is systematically restricting its web check-in to force passengers to upgrade, and guarantee that there will be some non web-checked-in passengers who will be marginally late and can be easily bumped from the flight. Secondly, the callous attitude shown by SpiceJet staff is not in keeping with an airline of stature and reputation.

Flight got delayed and parked at extreme end. The bus wasn't available and the bus ride from the aircraft to the arrival hall was longer than the flight from Bangalore to Chennai

I almost missed my flight because the people sitting at the check in counter would not print my boarding pass. I was there 50 mins before the flight. With no check in bags. Additionally the system doesnít work to get the boarding pass. Neither does web check in. So I was stuck waiting on them to print the pass for me. I talked to the manager. And he was able to print a boarding pass for me after so much debate. I donít understand. Finally gave me boarding pass and the manager said iíll have to rush through security. Else they wonít let me on board. I get through security and not a single soul had boarded the flight. And at the gate, on the sign board theyíve put Chennai flight in Ďsecurityí status. Indicating that security is still going on. Wow After all this drama, there was more. So they offloaded me from the flight at the main check in and then issued me someone elseís boarding pass. So at the gate I had to wait. For them to onboard me back? (Iím not sure) Or there was some miscommunication. The person sitting at the main desk came . He had given me wrong boarding pass. I later found out that they didnít let me get a boarding pass in the beginning because the flight was overbooked. With 50 mins still remaining, how is that fair ?! So at the gate they had to pull back one stand by passenger so they could let me in. There is no synchronization at all! And that lady who was on stand by was trying to get on the flight for a visa appointment. My heart broke. I hope she finds something. Or reschedules her interview Basically air India just gives their word and takes it back. Instantly. This is the impression I get from them while they are supposed to be representing India. Such a shame. FYI - the flight was delayed. Even though everyone was at the gate on time.

Travelled with my grandma and she required a wheelchair. I thought the process will be tedious to get one but I'm so happy it was easy to obtain and the staff who helped wheel her a BIG thank you.

Lousy!

I booked this flight to visit my aunt who was breathing her last. Spicejet ensured that did not happen. In spite of not having to have a check in baggage, they ensured that I was not allowed to board for a five-minute delay! I was forced to miss this flight, lose the money, take the next flight and by the time I reached my aunt had passed away . . I pleaded and did everything Spicejet employees only gave rude replies Stay away from Spicejet if you know what is good for you
