I bought a air India ticket in Chennai maa airport counter on 17/2/17 at 14:30 and came to cancel the flight ticket at 19:31 n the counter guy with specs telling the cancellation fare is 2200 inr but in ur website shows within for before 24hours or cancellation charge is 2000inr so what’s going on and why especially in Chennai MAA airport working people are strolling n behaving like robbers worsen than beggars and stealing money from public and no government or officers won’t take action against them because if we contact gov office we have to give some pocket money to them tooo so when India going to be clean?

    • Air ticket cancellation charges can vary and therefore it is not surprising that the airline official at airport has said that it will be Rs 2200.
