Asia Bizz: Indian Against Corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal accused the Indian carrier Kingfisher Airlines for not allowing him to board his flight to Dharamshala on June 22, 2012. The activist was travelling to Kangra via Dharamshala to address a public rally.
Kejriwal accused that he was not allowed to travel despite reaching the airport one and a half hours before time. The activist completed a Web check in but was denied the opportunity to board the flight.
Arvind said, “I checked-in using the Web at 11 in the morning, and reached the airport at 1.45pm, an hour-and-half before departure”. Kejriwal also said that his ticket had the red stamp and when he was waiting for his flight the officials ran his boarding pass through the scanner and it showed an error.
It was only after the boarding gates were closed, the activist was informed that that he has been officially offloaded. The officials told Kejriwal that his ticket has been sold to another person. Kejriwal was then told that the airline called him to ask if he was interested to travel and that he had confirmed a cancellation due to which the ticket was sold to someone else. On the other hand, Kejriwal said that he did not receive the call from the airline as he was standing in the queue of the boarding counter.
