The reservation was confirmed on the company's website. However, she was surprised in the airport that her reservation was canceled on grounds that the number if complete.

The plaintiff demanded the company to compensate her with 3000 BD for the damage it caused to her, in addition to the fees, expenses and attorney's fees as well as calculating 10% legal interest from the date of raising the lawsuit until that of payment.
