When I checked in @ the Hyderabad RGAI, I was made to pay? 1000 over & above my regular ticket fare since I was flying with my Sitar. This was despite having 2 tickets (my Husband's & mine) & only 1 other piece of checked-in luggage & no hand luggage WHATSOEVER; our total luggage weight was 21 kgs (WELL UNDER THE 30 KG LIMIT) . . When questioned, the staff said the fee was for special handling; my Sitar would not be place on the luggage conveyor belt, but would be brought separately . Despite paying the extra? 1000 & being assured that my Sitar would be handled separately, my Sitar was sent out on the conveyor belt at Bombay . What was the point of charging me extra & inconveniencing me so much No other airline has ever charged me extra for flying with my Sitar. I'm highly disappointed by my experience with spicejet & will NEVER fly Spicejet again.
