Hello, i'm studying in Indonesia, and im doing a report about somon air, i have to present. Could you please tell me, where i can find more information about somon air? there is no totally any information about this big company.
To Dr. Norehan Haji Hussein --
Sorry to hear of your students problem. Emirates and Somon Air don't have an agreement and as such the luggage does not get transferred automatically. You have to pay Emirates $85 (or thereabouts) to get the luggage transported to Somon Air flight. This is a tough situation if you are no prepared for it. I suggest he considers taking Fly Dubai next time.
A student of mine left KL to Dubai and from there to Dushanbe on SOMON AIR. In Dubai, he called me at midnight seeking help that the Airline demanded $84 (US Dollars) to have his luggage checked in. The student had less than 20 kg in his luggage, and no US dollars. He was in total PANIC and the ground staff gave him a hard time instead of explaining to him the standard procedure. The student is a native Tajikistan! For heaven sake, this is the airline own countryman, and still they were not being helpful to him.
