Recently I traveled with KingFisher Airlines in India. The flight was a round trip domestic flight and cost
811 USD. I made it on the way there, but on the way back due to financial problems, Kingfisher flights all over the country got canceled (actually I think it is still canceled) and I had to take a bus and buy another flight instead in order to return back.
Now, when contacting KingFisher, they have told me I would get a refund of
350 USD for the way back that got canceled.
I don't understand their calculation, and it sounds like it is not enough for all the trouble that I went through - Having to endure a 12-hour bus ride from hell and buy a flight in the last minute from a different airport for a high price.
My questions are:
- Does the amount sound right to you? Is there a standard way of calculating the refund?
- Is there anything I can do about it? Reasoning with them is not possible?
This is an old question, but I haven't heard back from Kingfisher and never got any refund from them. I guess in retrospective, I was naive to think I would :-)
