Cheating the passengers - spice jet & makemy trip

Spicejet & Makemytrip.com are frauds!!
I attempt to book a ticket on Spicejet through www.makemytrip.com for my daughter to travel; The site asks me to login, which I did! To my surprise, the ticket gets booked in MY name; I call makemytrip.com & spicejet.com and attempt to point out the mistake made by their websites and ask them to change the passenger's name or give me a refund.
Instead, what do I get?? No action!!! They want me to cancel the wrongly booked ticket, lose my money and book a fresh ticket on my daughter's name!!!! Why should I do that??
Each is now blaming the other!!! FRAUDS!!! I hope the CEO of Spicejet sees this!!!! Maybe our airline minister Mr. Ashok Gajapathi Raju sees this too and takes action on these frauds!!! Makemytrip.com is also a part of this fraud. Shame!!! Shame!!! more

I recently travelled between mumbai and chennai by spicejet. I wish to narrate something, I did in my naivety and, by and sleight of hand of the airline. While going through the motions of the booking, there is a point where the site leads you to select one's seat of preference. By the way, on spicejet, everything has a price. every choice of seat near the window and aisle was almost premium and, the one betweens were a cost somewhat lower. i deceived myself into a self-assumption that one needs to pay for allotment in addition to all the other costs. The subsequent week, i happened to again book a ticket by the same airlines for a trip to delhi. I realised then that one did not have to pay those wonderfully deceptive tactics and tricks the website takes you into. more

Shobhana, if u r convinced u r right, lodge a complain with Ministry of Consumer Affairs. Every airline has a Nodal Officer. Your complain will go to him/her. When Kingfisher had shut down their operation, MMT wanted me to bear cancellation charges( as decided by Kingfisher). I wrote to MCA and the KF Nodal Officer called me. I got full refund, no cancellation charges at all. Sadan Kumar Sinha, Navi Mumbai, more
