[Resolved] Indigo Airlines — not allowed for boarding on 05.03.2018 by indigo airlines flight no 6e 623
On 5th of march, i along with my family which includes my wife, my aged parents and my infant baby checked in kolkata airport for guwahati bound indigo on 05.03.2018 which was scheduled for 06.45 am, at around 05.30 am. We completed the security check and were in the lounge at the upper terminal. When we reached at gate no 23e at around 06.15 am for boarding, we were denied. The concerned staff there informed that flight was full and ready for departure; so we were not allowed. This was totally astonishing for us. To our dismay and surprise, we found as many as four to five other passengers who were on the same flight and were denied entry like us. We pleaded but of no avail on the ground that we did not listen any announcement neither any staff searched for us nor for other similar passengers.
We were simply left stranded. This is my first bitter experience which i never felt before.
This is not the end. They told us that we will be adjusted to other flight with some additional charges. However when we reached the counter that this is subject to availability of seats if remain in the next flight. According to the staff, there were nine seats available in the next flight but if they got booked, then we would have no change. Which force us to book for the next flight at the prevailing rate. As a result i incurred charge of rs 20804/-.
I am confused as i was given the tickets having same pnr no e9z5pv which was on 06.45 as well on the 10.40 (New ticket).
Other details are
Flight no on 6.45=6e 623
Flight no on 10.40 new ticket = 6e 207
I request you to kindly look into the matter and redress my grievance so that no passengers in future gets further hassled, also i want pecuniary compensation for the harassment which happened to my entire family (Including infant) and financial loss i incurred
