I left Niue on the 8th August, the staff were rude when I checked in my luggage my carry on bag was 8kg and was told to transfer some of my items into checked bag, went back and it weighed 7.4kg and was told to transfer more items into checked bag.
I asked how much will it cost to just allowed it on and the customs guy said $120.
So I transferred more items into check bag and it was cleared.
I then went to get my ticket stamped and informed the people I did not have to pay the $80 to depart the airport and showed them the papers of my ticket.
They said they need prof that I purchased my ticket after july and that the paper ticket was not good enough. after speeding money on internet and showing bank statement and emails of after purchasing tickets online and 45mins later they stamped my ticket receipt of $80 paid. After boarding the plane my sisters friend who was sitting in front of me so I said hello :) , she told me that her carry on luggage weighed 12kg over the limit and the man at the airport who was her uncle told her don't worry about it, you don't have to pay anything just bring it on the plane.
I was shocked ! and couldn't believe how wrong it was....
There are so many people who pay for extra luggage and extra weight and to hear this is observed !
The attitude that these stuff members showed and then hearing they break rules to suit themselves is not on and will be making a formal complaint.
