Airline charging for seats

Should not be allowed. All members please share this poll with your friends on whatsapp and request them to vote.

these local circles polls are taken seriously by the Govt based on what I have heard from couple of senior babu contacts I have in Delhi.

airlines should not be allowed to charge and 25% is best number of seats that can be reserved as paid seats. Rest should be first come first serve. more

I believe that instead of charging the public on the pretext of one or the other, the Airline Management should cut down their own expenses and freebies offered to their Pilots / staff. more  
Very unfair Trade-practice. Shouldn't be allowed at all. Airlines are always looting Passengers by one way or another. more  
they should apply more  
Manju Madam, This topic raised at several forums like different air lines face book/twitter pages ; repeated appeals by air traveler associations of India to DGCA, complaints to MRTPC (Monopoly and restricted trade practices commission) , but went in vain. All air service providers are having strong lobby with political corundum , hence this corrigendum can't be rectified.
Moreover, lot of unethical practices like:
1. Selling tickets on cheaper fares also attracts more fee for any amendment. For example , one service provider is going to charge Rs 700/- for any amendment in ticket if fare paid is above Rs 5000/- but need to pay Rs 2400/- if purchased at lower price.
2. Most of the airlines offers complimentary refreshments during booking but either they serve cheap food or some times they won't serve hot beverages like coffee / tea at all.
3. Boarding time declares never met since flight arrives at airport , they do open gates for boarding passengers but need to wait at vestibule or connecting bus till flight get ready for next trip in a hurry burry mode.
4. Some times, if you can observe getting down cargo through belts you surprise that whether any load carrying capacity is there for flights are not. If I am wrong, this point may be ignored, but as a lay man some times I do think that DGCA must install weigh bridges at airports to check whether luggage loaded is beyond load carrying capacity or dangerous since this point directly links with passenger safety if flight mechanism fails at mid air.
5. White elephants like Indian Air lines who surviving with passenger fares are some times really won't bother about normal passengers but busily engaged with VVIP hospitality services. One day my flight stranded at Delhi airport (Air India) due to fog from 6.30 AM to 10 AM where as crew won't bother to serve at least glass of water to passengers but very busily engaged with few front seat VIP passenger catering needs.
6. To put a stop for this type of "no value against fare we pay" activities , we need to unite in forums, groups etc and through web conferences, can discuss the problems and submit our memorandums to bureaucratic organisations like DGCA, Airport authority of India etc.
7. There are some air traveler associations exist in India but not in a reach with common man like per anum you need to pay few thousand rupees as member ship fee.
Hence this is a long term project to put airlines in a track from current greedy attitude of robbing from passengers, where govt & concerned whistle blowing dpets are putting a blinked eye. more
