A passenger named Auditya Venkatesh was trying to book a flight ticket from Hyderabad to Bengaluru. When he chose his desired flight with AirAsia and went ahead to confirm it, he was in for an odd surprise. His arrival and departure were all mixed up in a confirmation popup on his screen. The popup indicated that he was booking the ticket from Bengaluru to Bengaluru. Moreover, it showed that the ticket was being booked from Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru to Kolkata’s Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. A confused Venkatesh then took to social media and shared his ordeal. He also tagged the concerned airlines. And as expected, netizens flocked to the comments section with hilarious responses.
The post was made by a Twitter user Auditya Venkatesh. “Hi @AirAsiaIndia this is really confusing. So if I book this ticket, where will I really go? And where will I leave from?” read the caption shared along with the screengrab.
Take a look at his tweet below:
The airlines soon responded to the technical glitch and asked Auditya to refresh the page and make a fresh booking. The passenger replied and wrote, “The fact that it’s a glitch is obvious. It did the same thing again, it was to edit an existing booking via the chrome browser on an Android phone. It still keeps showing the same thing. I still went ahead and booked it, because it was a last minute change. Fingers crossed.”
Take a look at the tweets below:
Since being shared a day ago, the tweet has accumulated over 11,000 likes and several retweets. The share has also received a flurry of hilarious comments from netizens.
“This is a genuine service request but feels like a meme,” posted an individual. “The first Air Aisa flight I took was from Kolkata to Delhi. Apart from being 2 hours late, the moment we sat down, the crew announced, Welcome to this Air Aisa Flight from Kolkata to Chennai! Needless to say we all were flabbergasted! May be that too was a tech glitch,” shared another with a smiling emoticon. “You will land somewhere you don’t want to,” commented a third. “It may be a two way journey. Enjoy free. One side free with one,” joked a fourth. “Check In – Bangalore. Onboard – Hyderabad. Offboard – Bangalore. Collect Baggage – Kolkata. So easy bro,” wrote a fifth.
