Then I decided to take myelder son along with me, soI tried to get one moreticket for him, but I couldnot able to get it for sameday and same flight, so Icancel l the ticket to getall 3 tickets for sameflight that was the biggestmistake I made, the reason Icame to know that after 2days is I can't able topurchase/change ticket .thenI got horrible experiencewith the customer servicedepartment First they donot know what they are doingfor each clarification theyput me on hold for more then1 hour. I have waited for 5-6 hours on hold to getanswer this is one of theworst experience theircustomer service does, I gotbig shock from that, I willnot get my money back orchange that means I willloose entire $2,578.93 justfor canceling my ticket,then I spoke to customerservice and refuse to payback or change my tickets, Iwas with them more then anhour, ( I could not able totalk their supervisor evenholding for more then 2hours)Then I told them Iwill inform this to consumeraffair and Better BusinessBureau and write letters toall TV Channels, then theyhave changed their mind andstarting convincing me thatthey did not do this beforeand this their favor atleast they have providedtickets from London toBangalore as a courtesyetc., and try to arrange mytrip again finally they gotconfirmed that they gavearrange my trip from NewYork to Ban galore indifferent flight ondifferent time that theyhave informed me at 3:00 pmthe flight was 6:45 pmDeparture time, fortunatelyI was ready with mybaggage's, my wife drew meall the way to JFK from BuddLake to JFK it took morethen 2 hours.
