Me and my wife need to travel from Delhi to Hyderabad. Instead of taking a low cost airline i was thinking of giving 1st Class AC a try. On the day we want to travel only AP express has available 1st AC tickets so i hurried and book them online. Its just me and my wife who r travelling. I actually want to book a 2 berth coupe for us but i know that i have to wait till the chart preparation and that too there is no guarantee that i will be getting it. So what i did is i included 2 of my friends names and booked 4 berths. The truth is they wont be coming. Will there be any problem because my friends wont show up. What is the chance that i will be getting all 4 tickets in the same coupe. Because my friends are not there will the TTE give the berths to other passengers. I want to spend some good time and so i booked 4 tickets. I have no intention of cancelling them. Will that be a problem cause i did it on purpose.. Please kindly tell me if i need to know anything else..

Thanks...

Ofcourse the TTE will allot the 2 extra berths if there are passengers in RAC. I do not think you will get the "privacy" you are looking for in a 4-berth cabin of 1AC . Your best bet is to hope for the 2-berth coupe - maybe you can go see the station master a couple of days before departure.

Is there anyway i can convince the TTE and ask him not to allot the berths to any one. Any solution from any one... bcoz i cant imagine some one else in the cabin for which i payed for.. It is gonna ruin my entire journey..

I think you best bet is to cancel those 2 tickets and hope to get a 2-berth coupe alloted.
If you keep all the 4 tickets, the TTE will allot the 2 vacant seats to RAC/WL passengers when he notices it. And in that case you will end up with other passengers.
If you cancel, there is a chance that you will get your own coupe.

Kindly meet the ACM/CCM/DCM of the division and let them know that you would be needing a coupe. Put up some false excuse like either of you are not doing well, and hence you would want to take complete care of the other, or may be you are carrying a dog, or any other excuse you can come up with.
Put up a written application and a memo would be issued from either of them. You would just need to keep the signed letter to the station master/charting officer and they would do the rest.
