Regarding rescheduling of flight and unprofessional approach of ixigo

R Sir/Madam,

This is to state that i booked a flight from delhi to bengaluru for today that is 19/03/2020.But due to the prevalent pandemic of Corona virus I had to postpone my visit and i made a request on 18-03-2020 for the rescheduling of my flight from 19/03/2020 to 15 april 2020..I sent the msg.called your customer care person on wednesday.But no action was taken by IXIGO team.No reply or rescheduling was done.Moreover airline kept on sending msgs regarding boarding and all.This is my request to see the matter.As I am government servant and was going on official duty .But due to Corona Virus even the assignment was postponed.It is very unprofessional,inhumane approach that ixigo is behaving like this during the pandemic.Kindly take proper action ,otherwise i wont be having any option but to complain the matter to health Ministry,Civil Aviation Ministry and Consumer Court.This is not a way of earning profit during this kind of situation.

Hoping for your co-operation

Not refunded the registration amount

Client of indigo called me through shine.com and told that we offer u a job in Airticketing. But they asked for a registration fees of 1850 which is refundable if I don't get selected. But they never mentioned at the beginning that I have to 7600 for the second round. I had to quit the interview, and now they are telling that they will not refund the amount. His number is 7830245713.
Please do get in touch with him.

We have Indigo flights booked from Bangalore to Amritsar on 5th september , from Amritsar to Katra its roadway in car booked, and From srinagar to Bangalore again Indigo flight is booked. As per the trip on 7th september 2019, we are supposed to reach Katra . Since Jammu state is closed for tourists in this time and is not safe we are advice to cancel the trip .
Thus I request airline to consider this specical case and approve full refund for the same .

Not allowed to board the flight


This is regarding complaint against Indigo way of treating customers.
Incident is on 14th Feb 2019, flight no 6E163 ( Bangalore- Lucknow) Morning 11:15 AM departure.

I had reached Bangalore Airport indigo counter at 10:40 AM( It was late as there was huge traffic), but as I am travelling by Indigo from last 5 years continuously. And I was travelling with my wife and my parents. Total 5 passengers.

I had already done the web-checkin. As I reached the counter, the lady at the counter started with the process, but then the manager came and he stopped her from doing the checkin.

I inquired with him, he said if you need on priority, then you have to go to counter number 33 and pay some amount, we can't checkin you on priority like this. When I said I can pay the charges he said that the counter is closed.

Then he assigned some other manager and he said him to look into the matter but don't process the checkin. Is this the way Indigo is treating the passengers.

When I said that we don't want to checkin the luggage and just you send my parents in the flight with hand luggage, me and my wife will come in some other flight, then his response was that you should have given this option at the start, we can't give you these options. Even then 20 mins were there for the flight to take off.

Just because he has to do some paperwork, as he said, he was not ready to take even 3 passengers in the flight that too with hand luggage.

I requested a lot to the managers to allow atleast my parents, but in the end they didn't agree. I have to attend the marriage and I was not able to attend that.

I want the full refund for my 5 tickets.

Is this really the correct way of cooperation and what about my loss of money which i born because of non cooperation

Regarding Refund

Dear Indigo,

I had a flight on 12th Dec 2018 from Bangalore to Kolkata and due to unforseen circumstances reached boarding gate at 04:43 instead of 04:40 and the staff didn't allow to onboard the flight and was poi ting out again and again that I am 2-3 mins late.

To my utter surprise, They charged me Rs. 11767 for onboarding the next flight.

Due to emergency, I had to pay the same.

However, when I discussed the situation with Indigo staff today during my return flight at Kolkata airport, they informed me that for missed flights there is a provision to pay Rs. 1,000 and get a seat in next available flight.

Further, I got to know that one of my colleague also faced similar situation one week ago and she was helped with alternative flight for a nominal charges of Rs. 1000

It's not always possible for passengers to know all the policies of an airline and the staff should help the passengers to the best extent possible.

Flight delay and mannerless staff

I had a flight on 21st September, Bangalore to Lucknow 6E-847, scheduled departure at 18:30. And from Lucknow i had to catch a train the same day night at 23:00. Indigo people delayed the flight first by 45 mins, then by 1 hour and then again by half n hour. Because of this delay I couldn't catch my train and i was not able to reach home where i was supposed to reach asap. When asked the indigo staff about it, the lady sitting at gate 21 at that time had an extremely rude response as if they are not responsible for the delay and the problems caused to the passengers.
I had booked train tickets for 2 people and all that money is wasted now. I would like the indigo people to atleast refund my money if they can't be sorry for all the inconveniences caused because of them

Damage Baggage

Hi Team,

Yesterday I had boarded the flight from Kolkata to Bengaluru with PNR :-VL81FE
Flight 6E-342, when I received the baggage from belt it was completly damaged.

I cant understand why the ppl mishandle the baggage , this baggage are such expensive and the staff co-operation was not all as per expectation.

I have already raised the complaint and no response is being received so far.

missing luggage

My father (retired Army Personnel) & My son (9 years old) travelled from Trivandrum to Bangalore on 11th May (PNR no. SFJIMG) by Indigo flight. They had a check-in back of 11 kg, which contains, Honor smart phone with sim (5 months old), 10-12 pairs of my son`s new dress, Cosmetic bought from Dubai, Medicine & my father 2 pair dress. The trolley bag is from American Tourister. The approx. cost of all these valuables is around 18,000/-.

When they reached Bangalore, didn’t find the check-in bag and raised complaint to Indigo and mentioned all the above items in the complaint. They told us that we will get our luggage at 8am next day to our doorstep since this is connective flight to Kolkata so may be luggage is gone with that. I have waited till 10 am but didn’t receive any communication from Indigo and when I called, they said will get back to you by evening. Again, no response from Indigo, I called and asked do I need to send a mail or escalate to anyone, as mobile phone has many contacts, it should not be go to wrong hand and my father needs to travel back next day. They asked me to wait one more day.

As expected, no response from Indigo, when I called them, they said we got your bag in Trivandrum station and it will reach Bangalore in next flight. Will let you know the flight details, in 3-4 hrs. No response from Indigo, I called again and this time they say your bag not found, we have sent a mail to all the stations and will update you the status every day. As anticipated, no response from Indigo. In response to my calls, after holding call for 10-15 mins (in every call), I get the standard response from Indigo person that “Sorry for the inconvenience caused” and will let you know and call you. This is continued for 6 days from Indigo by false statement that will call you daily and update you the status, we are checking with station etc.,

On 7th day, I got a mail from Mr.Hammad, Indigo customer care, this is first time Indigo shown courtesy to contact the customer. However, it is mentioned that they lost my luggage and offering a compensation of 3800/- (350/kg). I have rejected the compensation since it is nowhere to my valuable costs, which is around Rs. 18000/- . Today, If I want to buy these items will be cost Rs.25000/-. In reply to my mail, Mr. Hammad called me and he also agreed that yes compensation is much lower than the valuables and asked why I didn’t raised a complaint to customer care. It was shocking question from Indigo. It was Indigo customer care, who are asking the dates and giving false information and didn’t had courtesy to call the customer and provide update. At last, he agreed that he will check and get back to me.

On 09th day, I got a mail that they can provide compensation only 3800/-. It is Indigo who lost my baggage. I need the compensation which is equivalent to my loss. Today is 12th day (23rd May) but no response from Indigo. They are checking the patience of customer by giving the incorrect information and showing no interest to find the luggage.
I would request Indigo to find my luggage or settle the compensation as the value of my luggage.
