Nice & Comfortable Journey

Mode of Transport: Train

I had a peaceful on time Journey without any delays. Few fellow travellers were too noisy and kept on speaking till late night and early morning. I am not sure about the train having pantry car but there are lot of food, tea, coffee vendors and also train stops at many stations. It's a recommended train for overnight journey.

Best travel, prompt ti mining of airlines

Mode of Transport: Flight

I feel indigo is one of the best options to choose in air travel. I am really impressed by their timings and hospitality. No much noise during fly. I recommend indigo to travel.
Bangalore airport has good facilities and cleanliness. But, please be careful when you travel with aged parents as the escalators are really dangerous and no attendant will be around to help in emergency.
I personally experienced, an aged women in the airport fell down from escalator and I ran back to help her. And no attendant was bothered to stop the escalator. The old lady was badly injured and her wrist was broken.
Please take aged parents/elders in lift only. Do not use escalators. This is the only request to all of you.

Good train with comfortable timings

Mar 2, 2016
Mode of Transport: Train

Daily train - Departure time to ensure office is completed and to ensure you reach office next day. Doesnt waste any time a complete overnight journey. Covers 662 km in less than 12 hrs time.

Maintainence was good. Coaches good. Food was available through caterers though train lacked a Pantry car. Rake belonged to SWR based at Bangalore. Ticket high demand and need to be booked as early as possible.

A pleasant flight

Feb 21, 2016
Mode of Transport: Flight

Flight was pleasant. We had visited the Plaza airport lounge at Bangalore airport for breakfast so we didn't order any snacks/breakfast on the flight. Was not really impressed by Kochi airport apart from the fact that it is the first airport to be powered entirely by solar power.
