Onboarded the Flight
Temporary Landing Permit did not work as the airline simply refused to let us board for it to come in action and Govt must look into it:
Did not enjoy Sri Lankan Airways. Not only ignorant they made money by charging us a new ticket for eve flight. more
I was travelling from San Francisco to Hyderabad via Singapore. I am aged with wife, unable to walk. So checked in at SFO by Singapore Airlines, and landed in Hong Kong. Since we two are wheelchaired those pushers are women, they are doing all check ins, by taking our passports and boarding passes. You all aware there several checks, the last one before stepping into the plane. One wheel pusher left, asking the other one to take care.
I was in hurry to board the flight and boarded. When I landed in Singapore and went to immigration, my passport was missing, but my wife's is there. I told her to go home. I was detained.
The passport is also having leather cover, issued by the Singapore airlines (due to late arrival), its not small item. Such a big book how it will be lost within the immigration area of Hong Kong. Even you throw the wrapper of chacolate or wafer, it will be picked up within seconds. Where the passport has gone? At singapore Airport, they asked me to sit, till the flight returned to Hong Kong, they searched and sent a message "Not traced".
The Singapore Airlines did not give me food and shelter, I have to look after myself, at the old age of 75 years. They were asking me to sleep in the lounge in a chair. Next day also they take easy, they don't attend to me. The I have to take a stand, " I am in the que and attend my work first. Then they contacted our High commission, they said, you should inform us, which you have not for 36 hours. He is an Indian Citizen and we will issue him travel papers,please send him to our office.
Then they sent an email and immediately, our Indian High commission sent necessary mail. I went and got an Emergency Certificate and flown to Hyderabad.
We thought, its is easy to fly, our car drops at Hyderabad and another picks up at San Francisco. But it was hell for me.
Since that incident I stopped flying "SINGAPORE AIRLINES' more
