Kingfisher Airlines used to be the darling of the flying class, with all the glitz and glamour they rolled out in flying, even for those with cheap tickets. Heck, the flying public in India never had it so good, and everyone was clamoring for one of those cheap tickets, which they used towards flying very well.
Anyhow, after the airline shut down, a lot of employees never got paid, and a lot of the loans that they raised never got paid back. Eventually the airline was put up for sale. I’m sure everyone is tracking the news where Vijay Mallya left the country for UK, and now with the government tightening the nooze on him, he is starting to talk about paying back the loans. This is absolutely a land grabber act, where the guy said it was the company which failed, while taking no personal responsibility for the acts of the company he owned and promoted.
Leave aside the millions of miles which went uncashed by people, as miles are a property of the company which issues them. A lot of people who wanted to fly Kingfisher and had tickets booked, however, never got their refunds from the airline. What about these people? Will Kingfisher Airlines or their boss also pay up people whose tickets were never refunded?
What was your last experience with Kingfisher Airlines. Did you get your refund or you were left hanging by the airline?
