IndiGo charges passenger a 'cute' fee. Internet is confused

New Delhi: A passenger who recently travelled on an IndiGo flight shared a screenshot of the price breakup of his ticket fare. His motive was to bring the internet’s attention to a certain component in his ticket which was called the “cute fee”. Twitter user Shantanu shared the price summary and he had a rather witty take on this component mentioned in his ticket. While he was well aware of why the airline was charging him a cute fee, he shared the post with a dose of humour. Of course, his tweet triggered an array of reactions. While some tried to explain what this component was all about, others played along.

Shantanu shared a screenshot of his air ticket on Twitter. He highlighted the ‘price summary’ section which showed the various components of his airfare. Besides being charged for security and convenience, among others, the passenger highlighted that the airline had a ‘cute fee’ included.

“I know I’m getting cuter with age but never thought @IndiGo6E would start charging me for it,” he shared the screenshot with this caption.

For the uninitiated, CUTE fee stands for Common User Terminal Equipment. It is an amount charged for the use of metal detecting machines, escalators and other equipment at the airport.

Now, people had hilarious reaction to this tweet. While some tried to explain what this fee was all about, others played along and left behind some hilarious comments.
