  1. … apparently a non-Indian (US) Amex card doesn’t work for the Amex discount. Is there a genuine reason so often there seems to be an allergy to foreign credit cards? Earlier today on an Indigo flight I tried to pay for my sandwich with a variety of cards. Not one worked. I don’t live in India, but am back a few times a year, and don’t have an Indian credit card.

    • @Gaurav, just like Indians can’t get the 200$ statement credit every year on airlines, you can’t have the Indian promotions. You got to roll with the punches.

      • When you put it that way, it makes perfect sense. (Incidentally, MMT’s algorithms recognized that I’d paid using an Amex and the app sent me a notification that I could get the 500INR discount. That’s cruel haha.)

        But, why are foreign cards not accepted for purchase at places? Like on board a 6E flight. I’d purchased the ticket on a US Amex from their website! (Actually MMT) – govt. regulations…?

        • No. Just the card network/bank they use for processing payments doesn’t support international cards. Happens in the reverse too all the time. Some machines in the US may take your card, others won’t.

  2. When MMTBLACK DOUBLE BLACK was introduced(back in 2017 I believe) they used to allow cancellations of upto 10 flights. Boy! what a time it was, I saved around 22K in cancellations . However within few months they changed it to 5 cancellations (for new members) and now it is just 2.

    • Yeah. That was definitely worth it.

      I feel MMT can probably introduce more options for membership.

      Like may be I can have 1000 Rs but instead of just booking with my name, any booking can be cancelled “if booked from that account”.

      I book for my family and often feel that’s missing.

      Similarly, another feature could be more cancellations for higher fees.

      Liked the feature of no cancellation bonus, like insurance premium. That makes chances timepass cancellations much less.

      • Or they can charge a little more membership fee and allow more cancellations but instead of waiving off the complete cancellation charge MMT can levy only 10% of the total penalty.
