Justice S Jagadeesan, a former chairman of the Intellectual Property Appellate Board as well, was to fly from Chennai to Coimbatore on April 28, 2010 on a Spicejet flight. The flight was scheduled to leave at 8.45am. After going through the security check, he was at the waiting lounge when the first announcement for boarding was made. As there was a long queue to board the flight, a member of the ground staff, on knowing Jagadeesan's identity, requested him to wait and assured that he would take him once the rush was over. Justice Jagadeesan waited in the lounge till 8.40am, under the impression that there was an unscheduled delay in departure as the ground staff failed to turn up to take him. He then went to the boarding gate and was told the boarding process for the flight was already over. There was no final announcement through the public address system nor any phone call to his mobile phone before the boarding gate was closed. As he was not allowed to board, Justice Jagadeesan sent a legal notice to the airline the next day and a rejoinder to its reply. When there was no further response, he filed a complaint before the state consumer commission."
