“@lufthansa @DGCAIndia – Seriously what kind of training are the airlines giving to their customers. If this is a polite way then God knows what unethical means. He can't explain the problem instead. Another said that the embassy should not return the ticket.

“How arrogant she was talking to the customer because she actually doesn't care if the customer was wrong but should have behaved politely. I had the same arrogance, so @lufthansa A staffing agency should think about changing before it's too late …” shared a third user.

“@lufthansa @Lufthansa_India What's the harm in guiding a customer with a good reason instead of harassing customers? What if someday you are waiting for customers and customers choose your competitors. Please Be very courteous to customers because the future is going to be very competitive,” expressed an X user.
