Dear Red Bus Team I have one complaint regarding my travel. I had booked a sleeper a/c from chennai to vishakapatnam. We reached the boarding well in advance and was waiting to board in as per the announcement. Just 10 mins before departure i got a call that your bus has been changed to semi sleeper and they will refund the balance. It was totally unexpected and a very tiring journey for me. I think i should been informed atleast 3 hours before so that i could have made alternative arrangements. Hope this inouts help in my future travels via red bus Cheers Abhishek
