After IndiGo said on Twitter that it will be charging a fee for its web check-in facility, Twitter users came up with some hilarious ideas for the budget airline to make some extra bucks. It all started when IndiGo, responding to a query on Twitter informed that it has revised its policy and that all seats will be chargeable for web check-in.

A Twitter user asked IndiGo if it was charging for a web check-in as the person was not able to do it without selecting a seat and all seat selection was against a fee. To this, IndiGo responded: As per our revised policy, all seats will be chargeable for web check-in. Alternatively, you may check-in at the airport for free. Seats will be assigned as per the availability.

As soon as IndiGo informed about the changed policy, reactions erupted on Twitter, with some hilarious ones. Stand-up comedian Atul Khatri said that IndiGo may also begin charging for loo and oxygen masks soon, while Akash Banerjee called extra charge for window seats ‘beautiful landing cess.

In fact, a couple of Twitter users suggested that they can bring their own seats.

After witnessing the reaction from people, Ministry of Civil Aviation swung into action and tried to calm the consumers by saying that it has taken note of the situation and is reviewing these fees to see whether they fall within the unbundled pricing framework.
