Another SpiceJet sale? I have seen a lot of these sales this year but this one takes the cake. SpiceJet has dropped prices to INR 1. The next slabs are INR 799 and INR 1499. Tickets can be booked between 1st and 3rd April 2014, for travel between 1st July 2014 to 28th March 2015. The discounts, as per SpiceJet should only be on the new flights introduced. However, they are pretty randomly scattered all over the place.
Now, while the detailed terms and conditions say there is no fuel surcharge on the INR 1 tickets, the fuel surcharge is indeed being charged on the INR 1 tickets at some points (highlighted). Here are the T&C:
- The offer is valid only on bookings made between April 01, 2014 and April 03, 2014 (both days inclusive) for travel dates between July 01, 2014 and March 28, 2015 (both days inclusive).
- The offer is valid on all bookings done directly through www.spicejet.com, online travel portals and travel agents only.
- The offer is not available through any other channel including any corporate login IDs, SpiceJet’s our Sales and Reservations centre and Airport Ticketing offices
- The discounted fare includes Base Fare only. Under this offer there is no Fuel Surcharge levied on the tickets. All statutory taxes, fees and surcharges etc., as applicable on the date of travel are to be borne by the customer(s).

- The offer is applicable only on direct flights on SpiceJet’s domestic network.
- Limited inventory is available under the offer and is subject to availability on First-Cum-First-Served basis.

And here is the actual ticket booking scenario, with Fuel Surcharge imposed:
And the same flight the next day, without Fuel Surcharge:
