Spicejet cancelled our flight from Bangkok to New Delhi on Saturday 21st March 2020. Spicejet has promised a full refund. Spicejet’s charter states a refund shall be given within 7 days if paid by credit card. Furthermore, India’s Supreme Court ruled that Spicejet must pay refunds before 31st March 2021.
However, after over 15 months of waiting for a refund, Spicejet has still not paid my refund. Spicejet claims the refund is ‘under process’ and will be ‘at the earliest’. This ‘process’ has so far lasted over 15 months. It seems Spicejet plans to delay payment of the refund indefinitely.
Therefore, Spicejet is in breach of contract and the Supreme Court ruling.
