You are shouting (unnecessarily) and blaming Emirates for what is your fault. Emirates provide lots of very helpful visa advice, such as: Please double-check foreign entry requirements for travellers from your country of nationality from their website, and their Terms and Conditions (in this respect effectively identical to all other passenger ...

If you buy a mobile phone, and the store tells you it has 2gb RAM, then when you reach home and you open the box, you find that it has only 1gb of RAM (and the manual states the same as well), who's to blame now? the manufacturer or the store? of course the store. The same exact thing happened to you, regardless of the reason, whether it is plain cheating, ...

In many cases it is impossible for the airline to require a visa or to check for a visa prior to selling you a ticket. Tickets can be purchased up to 330 days in advance of travel, but many countries will not issue a visa more than 60 days ahead of arrival. Many countries require proof of travel in the form of an e-ticket or confirmed itinerary before they ...

It's the Travel Agent's responsibility. Period. A Travel-Agent that transfer you to the airline to solve your problems is like your lawyer telling you to go convince the judge you're innocent. It's their job. Let me explain why: Travel Agent are the middle man in this scenario, they work for the airline to get you a seat. Once they do that, they either ...

There is! But there aren't any signs to tell you... As explained on the PTV Airport Buses page, the SkyBus ticket office at the airport sells the myki Visitor Value Pack. That costs $14, and comes with $8 credit (plus a few other bits). There are no signs at the SkyBus ticket office about myki, it isn't listed on any of the prices shown, but if you queue ...

An airline is not required to check your visa and entry compliance before selling you an air ticket. You can buy a ticket for any destination even when you do not have a passport. Checkin staff normally checks your visa before they give you your boarding pass and the first flight was to Dubai where your daughter did not require a prior visa so the airline ...

You can actually buy a ticket on the bus itself. I've done it, and as you can see on the official website, it is one of the published official outlets. From: http://ptv.vic.gov.au/tickets/myki/buying-your-myki/ Where you can buy a myki You can buy a myki At over 800 retail outlets including all 7-Eleven stores and selected retailers where you see the ...

Yes, it's entirely possible, and since Delta and Korean are both in Skyteam the itinerary is quite feasible. However... Tickets like these are usually impossible to book online, you will need to book this directly with the airline or a travel agent. (Update: There are exceptions, and Delta appears to be one of them!) While price difference between ...

A friend recently had this happen. He'd booked a flight for his family (moving from the UK to Australia) with Emirates, through a travel agency. The flight had a special code with the agency, meaning they could take extra luggage. At the airport, they were told they were over the limit, the code wasn't on their booking and they'd need to pay an extra 2000 ...

There's the question who is right, and there's the question how you get on your flight with both one piece of checked-in luggage and your hand luggage. The second question might be more important to you, and your only choice may be to pay the airline. If you ask them they will most likely at least send you written documentation that the travel agent booked a ...

Given the details you provide, this answer is not going to be specific for travelling. To me, the crucial part of your case description is this: The OTA seems mostly to respond in cut'n'paste standard answers, so haven't yet replied specifically about my screenshot, not specifically about their website disagreeing with the airline. This seems to be the ...

When I first read your question, I thought you might be referencing mobile-checkin, which is starting to become popular. As I looked into your question, I think this is just fancy wording for the ability to show your email at a checkin counter, where they will pull up your info and print your boarding pass. Taken from wikipedia electronic ticket: To ...

You can use the Velocity Frequent Flyer (Virgin Australia's loyalty program) Status Earn Fare Class table to perform the conversion - https://www.velocityfrequentflyer.com/content/Info/StatusEarnFareClass/ In that table, you can see that T falls under Discount Economy which is the other name for Saver/Saver Lite. The table does not differentiate between ...

There's also a vending machine within Melbourne airport where you can buy (and presumably top up) a myki.

An alternative not mentioned in @Gagravarr's answer is that you can purchase a myki online from the PTV website.

The information you have provided is both valid and correct, but just to add an insider perspective so to say (though technically I am no longer employed in the Indian Railways). I will also try and add a scenario where your thought process can backfire for others. Indian Railway has a (in)famous quota system which is complicated but in all fairness works ...

Get the bus. Edinburgh's trams are a local disaster story. Given contracting disputes, failed planning and key individuals resigning (see this BBC article for more info), Edinburgh council has spent 7 years and £1 billion building a single tram line that is both slower and more expensive than the existing airport bus service. If you get the express ...

Short answer to an easy question: the airline is not responsible for your legal issues regarding obtaining a visa. They don't have to jump in as a consultant when you purchase a ticket. Obtaining a visa often implies, among other requirements, to already have a ticket, so, if the airline required a visa, it would be impossible to obtain a visa without a ...

Most likely when there is a manual update to the booking by an agent, no automatic receipt is issued and sent by email, unlike when you do it yourself online through a website. However, this does not mean you will not be able to get a receipt at a later time. Just email their customer support or visit their office if there is one around you and they will ...

Some countries require you to purchase a return ticket before issuing a visa. So no, the airline won't check your visa when you purchase the ticket. I am surprised The visa wasn't checked when she boarded the flight in Dallas

All the above answers provided are perfect, except the last part. RAC tickets, for this purpose are considered confirmed tickets, and refund is provided accordingly, in this specific case though, RAC is not even possible in Tatkal. However for tickets booked on-line and promoted to RAC (and even without a confirmed sleeping berth) at the time of ...
