I had travelled from Pune to Hyderabad with my 4 year old daughter on the 31st of dec 2018.
PNR for which is IN8YRB.
On receiving the bag in Hyderabad i was shocked to see that the bag had been torn apart from both the sides. There is no possible way that a bag can be mishandled in such a way that it gets torn this way. I immediately informed the ground staff regarding it and they offer me an indigo voucher of just Rs.1500 as compensation.
Just to let you know, that my bag has been damaged beyond repair. The bag was hardly 8 months old and in excellent condition. The bag was a leather one and had costed me more than Rs. 5000. How does a compensation of Rs. 1500 justify for the damage.
Moreover, the tear from both the sides was so big (around 8 inches)that things were falling out of the bag. I was not sure at the time of collecting the bag that what all could have gone missing from the bag. On raising this concern, i was told that i could go home and inform later if anything had gone missing.
On a thorough searching of all my bags, i have realised that my spectacles case containg my pair of glasses has gone missing. They were a Tommy Hilfiger brand frames and had a value of more than Rs.14000.
On finding this i called the customer service to inform them about it and what they told me was that they cannot offer anything more than 1500 voucher. I told her repeatedly that i Cannot accept such A petty amount as it is nothing compared to the loss that has incured. Also would like to comment on the behaviour of the representative who spoke to me. She was senseless and repeating the same thing and which was irrelevant to what the issue was. The airlines has simply denied to take any responsibility of mishandling and pilferage and have refused to look into the matter any further. May be someone had tried to tear the bag hoping to find something as the bag had tags from the international journey taken 2 days before this trip. As this irreparable damage has been done by the airlines, they should take the responsibilty of either providing a replacement bag of equal value or provide an appropriate compensation.
And for the missing frames, they could have either assured that they will tleast try to trace the lost item. But they were least bothered and did not want to do anything from their side. The frame value are of around Rs. 14000 and i expect that they provide an appropriate compensation or replacement for the same.
