The District Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission in Ernakulam has ruled in favor of Justice Bechu Kurian Thomas, a Judge of the Kerala High Court, by directing Qatar Airways to pay him Rs. 7,50,000/- as compensation for being denied boarding on one of their flights. The incident occurred when the judge had arrived at the airport on time but was unexpectedly prevented from boarding the flight. This led to inconvenience and financial loss for the judge. The commission, after hearing the case, found Qatar Airways at fault and ordered them to provide the compensation amount.
