I have got tickets booked from air india official site for availing LTC the tickets are not of LTC fare but cheaper than this of the fare on that day. Is this in order pl let me know

Anonymous said...

Your purchase of ticket is not in order. You have to purchase ticket under LTC 80 scheme even if it is costing you more.For example Air india flight ticket is cheaper when purchased through makemytrip than Air india official website yet you have to purchase ticket through Air India directly or through its official agents. Reason best known to the policy makers.

This is in response to reply to query dated 07.10.2011, 9.23 PM,
Any ticket purchased through authorised Agent of Air India, or through Air India website or its counters, is a valid ticket in terms of order dated 4.03.2011 provided that the total fare is less then the LTC80 fare irrespective of the fact that whether it is purchased under LTC80 or normal ticktet.

I had availed tour LTC to visit J&K during 30.05.2014 to 07.06.2014. While booking my air tickets on internet, I got my tickets booked through 'cheap airfares' site & I selected Jet Airways to book my ticket on 30.05.2014. However, after submission of final claim, my office has disallowed the entire air fare stating that the air tickets have been booked from unauthorized agent. I feel that it got accidently booked through makemytrip site when I selected Jet Airways option. I understand that in such circumstances, the claim is admissible and only the charges paid to the makemytrip i.e. Rs. 250-300/- per ticket will be deducted. Please clarify if this is in order. Regards.
