I recently travelled on spice jet from Vijayawada to Chennai. I noticed several small changes being done. I have used Spice Jet several times before and never had this kind of experience. Sorry to say, it wasnít great.
First off, I was (we international travelers) have been able to use our international credit cards and still were able to web-checkin. But, thatís gone now. We have to stand in line even if we donít have any luggage to check in. I donít understand why every travel mode in has to make it difficult for international credit card holders. Is that something of a joy you get putting us through such pain !? I switched to flight only because I no longer can book train tickets using my International visa! Not everyone has the time and energy to keep up with ever changing rules!
Secondly, there are people who travel internationally and also locally and cannot switch/re-pack luggage every time. The 15kg limit and such a hard cap on that limit and extracting money for every kg after is just beyond ridiculousness. I paid 3 times the actual ticket charge only because I had to use my international luggage !? Is that fair? Canít spice jet give some kind of discount/concession or an adjusted international fare for people if they can show proof that they have been travelling outside of India? Each suit case limit outside of India is 23kgs! You allow 15, which right there requires money for the extra 8kgs!
