Kuwait AirwaysNo refund given on refundable ticket

I booked my ticket on Clear Trip from Doha to Mumbai return via Kuwait Airways and the ticket was refundable at the time of booking. Recently I cancelled my booking due to current situation of Corona and was expecting some amount in refund but I got zero which is not fair. By the way, what is the cancellation fees for Kuwait Airways?

Airline charged me QAR 1045 cancellation charge, then what is the meaning of refundable? This is the first time I booked ticket with Kuwait Airways and will never do it again.

Good lesson.

          Kuwait Airwaysdelayed flight from london heathrow to colombo, sri lanka

          My name is Nagalingam Nadarajah Rajanayagam.
          My Kuwait Airways.Oasis Club Membership no is [protected]. I travelled from Heathrow airport to Sri Lanka on 4th May 2019 by flight KU0102. My E-ticket number was [protected]. I had a connection flight KU0363 from Kuwait at 02:00 hours on 5th May to Colombo

          Flight from London was delayed by about three hours. When I arrived at the Kuwait airport we were not told that our connection flight to Sri Lanka had already left. We were taken to a local airport and were put on Oman airways to Oman and then from Oman to Sri Lanka by Oman airways.

          My arrival time at Colombo airport was more than five (5) latter than scheduled including all the flight delays. When I arrived at Colombo-Bandaranaike airport I missed arranged transport to Jaffna, an eight hours of travel by road. I had to stay at one of the Negombo (near the airport) hotels that day on the 5th May before I headed to Jaffna the following morning. Because of this delay I missed my business appointment but luckily I did not loose my business as a result.

          Considering all the difficulties I had gone through I would appreciate if you could offer appropriate compensation.

          Many thanks and regards,

                  Kuwait Airwaysmissed power bank and broken trolley


                  I along with my family travelled from kochin to JFK Airport on April 7 2019. During the baggage check at Kuwait they requested to keep my 2 Power bank and mobiles in a separate bin. When i take my bin back I came to know that one of my power bank is missing. When i complaint to Kuwait airlines guards they requested to check my bags. I couldn't find the missing one. Guards took my baggage to do another scan to check the missing power bank. They couldn't find any and when they just pulled the trolley from the conveyor they broke the handle. They never apologized for the missing power bank or the broken trolley. I complaint to Kuwait airways authority ( assume he is from GeForce team) He promised me that I will receive compensation soon and requested me to register a complaint. Never heard back from him again.
                  I have attached the complaint letter which has the reference number. Looking forward to hear soon.

                    Kuwait Airways — no response to my lost baggage complaint

                    Kuwait airways Service: flights - departure uk Date raised: october 4th, 2018 03:59 Booking reference and/or...

                    The complaint has been investigated and
                    resolved to the customer's satisfaction
                    Kuwait Airwayscancelling flight less than 24 hours before the predefined time.

                    Dears, , my family ( wife & kids & maid ) was supposed to travel from doha to cairo 7-May 9:30 AM and arrive cairo 3:35 pm...booking reference ( RQVASP )...i received message 06-May 12:49PM from Kuwait airways telling me that the flight has been cancelled and the new flight will be at the same day but at 19:10PM and arrive at cairo 08-May 00:45 PM, This change made our plans upside down due to the following reasons:-
                    1 ) My kids did not go to the school at the next day because they arrived cairo late night.
                    2) My daughter missed a test at 08-May.
                    3) My family supposed to attend an important family gathering at 07-May
                    and they missed it.
                    4) I booked and paid for the original booking because the flight was at the
                    day time and the changed flight was at the night time.
                    5) I changed my working schedule at 07-May to drop off my family to the
                    6) We spent much money due to that change because some arrangements
                    has been changed.

                    So, i am waiting for considered compensation from Kuwait airways due to the last minute change ( specially that i guess that this change for pure economical and saving money reasons )...
