The passenger, Arif Irshad, had booked his flight through the Indigo website and carefully selected seat 1D for his journey. He made the necessary payment to the airline for the chosen seat and received a boarding pass, which clearly displayed Seat 1D.

However, upon reaching the check-in counter at the Delhi airport, Irshad was met with an “unexpected and unwelcome surprise.” The airline staff informed him that the system had automatically changed his assigned seat, reassigning him to a different seat.

Expressing his frustration, Irshad stated, “I specifically paid for Seat 1D and selected it while booking to ensure a comfortable journey. I was shocked when the airline staff told me that my seat had been changed without any prior notice or explanation.”
