IndiGo Passenger Posts About Cushion-Less Seats; Airline Responds

Yavanika Raj Shah recently booked a flight from Bengaluru to Bhopal with IndiGo. What she didn’t expect was to find seats without cushions on the flight. She took to X (formerly Twitter) to share the incident and even tagged the airline. The post had a picture of the cushion-less seat and a simple yet sarcastic caption. It read, “Beautiful @IndiGo6E — I do hope I land safely! :) This is your flight from Bengaluru to Bhopal 6E 6465.”

After seeing the tweet, IndiGo responded and said that the seats were replaced for cleaning. In their response, the airline explained that removing seats to clean is a “standard practice during transit as and when required.”

Such practice, according to IndiGo, reflects the airline’s high standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

While IndiGo and the passenger resolved the matter over the cushion-less seat, the internet had a field day over this entire incident! The tweet has now got more than a million views and hundreds of comments. And we have picked out some that you simply cannot miss out on.

Some of these comments were downright hilarious!

Some people in the comments even ended up comparing these flight seats with the Air India ones.

It does look like a case of bad communication since the airline started boarding before tidying up the flight after cleaning, as per their own claim. What do you think about this? Fill us in in the comments.
