“Vishakhapatnam to Hyderabad. I had a pleasant flight with Spicejet. The cabin staff were polite and so was the overall crew from the airport to the flight itself. The flight left relatively on time and was short and sweet. I would recommend it to others.”

“I was flying from Hyderabad to New Delhi on spice-jet Flight No SG 126 on 27th April 2019. During the security check, I forgot to collect my laptop from the tray and went to the boarding gates. Just 30 mins before the flight time I realize that my hand baggage is light and recognize that I forget the laptop at the security counter. I asked support from the SpiceJet security staff. They ask to go and check with the CISF and send Spicejet staff) with me. But the Lost and found store was locked. My laptop was very important to me I was ready to leave my flight and wait for the next morning, get my laptop and take another flight. But the staff said to me that he shall take full responsibility and will collect it on my behalf and will send it the next day. By his level of confidence and assurance, I got convinced and boarded my flight. This Spicejet guy did all the formalities and sends it to me the next day. After 24 hours I got my laptop in Delhi. I salute the dedication spice-jet staff to their work.”
