Air India Flight 1: No change.
Air India Flight 2 (Connecting flight): Cancelled.

Air India is offering me an alternative to cancelled flight, but I has to wait for 12 hours 30 minutes at Delhi Airport. And they are saying it’s the only alternative flight available with them. So what can I do in this case? Anyone here successful in getting free lounge access/hotel vouchers in such situations.

Its my sincere req to all the folks out there

NEVER EVER BOOK AI FLIGHT TICKETS, THEY R REALLY SHITTY!

Last time when i travelled from cok-bom, everyone boarded in the aircraft soon after taxing the aircraft to the main runway it literally stopped for 15-20 mins and then we heard this

Due to some technical issue, we can’t fly the aircraft right now so they again went to the maintenance area and ASKED EVERYBODY TO BOARD OFF THE FLIGHT

and after 3-4 hours or so, d flight finally took off !

second reason i always ignore AI is yes becoz of cancellations, they give lame reasons like sorry sir we don’t have a pilot to fly this aircraft ?
i mean really AI ? you gone crazy !

I has not taken travel insurance for this trip. I just now called AI customer care and asked for lounge access/hotel benefit. He says AI doesn’t directly facilitate lounge and I has to contact Airport Authority.

They are supposed to arrange for hotel accommodation for such a long unplanned stopover. Lounges aren’t supposed to be used for more than 3-4 hours anyway. But rather than doing that, they will of course prefer to offer you full refund. I once received a hotel stay when they cancelled a red-eye flight from Delhi. The next flight was after 8 hours. But things are different now.

Since you seem to be okay with such a long stopover, I guess you have time to fight them legally to offer you hotel stay. Because that’s what most users lack when settling for less.

Is there any flight by any other operator? You can claim full refund of ticket cost plus compensation. If the ticket cost of alternate flight is not vey high, you would be able to get a ticket in that airlines. Remember, do not beg. You are asking as a right. If they refuse, ask them to give the refusal in writing.

It happened few times with me.. Delay in flight and all the time they communicated after i reach Airport. No other option rather than waiting in the airport. But all the times it was around 2 to 3 hrs delay. So better to avoid, but if you left with no choice, book with Insurance.

Ye Link me ek hero ke comment ko padho https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif

Captain Archit Gupta, CEO of Atom Aviation Services says, “If a flight is delayed by less than 24 hours, the airline has to provide meals and refreshments to passengers. If the delay is exceeds 24 hours, hotel accommodation and transfers must be provided.”
