When was this?
Either the rules changed after that or the buggers had a nice party, thanks to me.
PS: Probably the VIP traveler might have saved it. I only had a trekking backpack with me.
Only time I traveled with Indigo was on 11th March 2013 to Mumbai & on 16th March 2013 from Mumbai to Delhi. (When I went for Frames).
VIP Traveler could be a possibility, Rucksack could be an issue.
It happened like this. At the Checkin counter, I asked to put a "Fragile". They asked what are you carrying. I told, scotch. They asked, is it properly & safely packed. I Said yes, its clubbed between clothes & has its own box too. They put a fragile & Let go.
On return, they didn't even ask about packaging. I Asked for Fragile, they asked for content, I told Scotch, they put Fragile.
