>> Hi friends
>> Yesterday I was to return back from Bangalore to Hyderabad. I had booked 
>> a
>> Kingfisher ticket.
>>
>> The flight was at 9 pm and I reached the airport by 7.45.
>>
>> At checkin counter the female, asked me to see their supervisor and she
>> sent
>> me along with an assistant. The supervisor said that I be given an isle
>> seat.
>>
>> They made me seated in the waiting hall and they told they would give me 
>> a
>> boarding card and to be seated as there was a long queue.
>>
>> Half an hour elapsed and there was no sight of them. I went to the 
>> counter
>> and I got the same reply and was again seated.
>>
>> I waited for another 15 minutes and by then, the security call was
>> announced. I again went to the counter and demanded for the boarding card
>> and I insisted I would wait no more.
>>
>> At this time she rattled that she could not give me the boarding card and
>> that she would give me full refund.
>> On demanding the reason, she went onto  say that all the cabin crew were
>> females on that flight and as I was travelling alone they could not help.
>>
>> I had a heated exchange of words and refused to budge anything short of a
>> boarding card.
>>
>> She spoke to the crew and made it clear that I was not giveing in. In the
>> mean time I kept my cellphone camera in video mode.
>>
>> Finally I was given the boarding card and hurridly my security was done.
>>
>> I sat sulkily in my seat and made no bones showing my displeasure. I 
>> hadto
>> give the crew a mouth full and I used my opportunity when they served
>> food.
>> I told them I was too agitated to eat anything. They were very sorry at
>> the
>> end of it.
>>
>> Before deplaning on reaching Hyd I gave them another dose and demanded
>> from
>> them what extra they had to do for me.  I finally told to tell all their
>> colleagues such an incident should never occur.
>>
>> I am surely going to complain to DGCA, how their new guidelines is
>> followed.
>>
>> Harish.
