People’s lives have been made simpler by the internet, which puts everything at their fingertips, from grocery shopping to vacation planning. Although its many advantages, the internet’s convenience is not without its drawbacks, particularly when it comes to phoney messages and adverts. Make My Trip, a travel website, conned a man from Bangalore.
Details about a man from Bengaluru pays Rs. 1.6 lakh for “non-existent” business class seats on a flight
Rohit Varma, a man, described his horrifying incident on Twitter. He purchased tickets for a Vistara flight from Bangalore to Guwahati, which is when the incident occurred. He paid Rs. 1.65 lakhs for seats on the plane that weren’t there.
“@makemytrip is running a scam. They sold me business class tickets for a flight which does not have business class itself. It’s impossible to reach their customer care. I have been trying to get in touch with them but no response at all. They have to refund INR 1.65L to me,” Varma tweeted.
He also mentioned that he spoke with the airline’s management. “Spoke to airlines yesterday. They were also shocked. @airvistara has promised to help me out,” Varma wrote on Twitter.
The trouble was quickly remedied by the travel agency, and Varma received the money back. Meanwhile, news of the tragedy shook the online community.
So that excursion turned out to be’made up,’ one said. Another individual said, “After Covid, the majority of these aggregator websites have abandoned live customer service on their helplines. One must either compose an email and wait, or navigate an exhausting IVR menu. I started making my reservations directly on airline websites as a result. I choose my flights using flight aggregator websites.”
Then, Varma deleted the main tweet.
