Air India is really a nice airline. It is very homely as well as fantastic. There is no complaint whatsoever. It is a complete service. The morning munching are very good. Being an international flight, it is always on time or before. It starts at 6 am and reaches at around 6.40 am. You are in the city by 7.30 am for the day's work. The flight take-off as well as landing is very gentle and the pilot is always very caring. The crew is very helping and empathetic. Thanks Maharaja for the royal service as well as the royal travel.

The Bangalore City is a traffic city and Chennai to Electronic City from Bangalore, I loved the drive. But after Electronic City it's completely a traffic zone. So, overall somewhat I enjoyed the driving. I started at 4.30 am from Chennai and while going I had good coffee in Velore Bridge. My breakfast with the Good Hotel A2B near by Hosur was good.

Disappointed bus travel as it was not on time

Mode of Transport: Bus

I booked the ticket as I just want to be at destination at the right time as KPN brand is known for it. But I was pissed off, my departure was schedule at 7.45 am but I started from Koyambedu at 9 am. Guess KPN Travels has gone worst, even in travel the bus stopped at 3 places for some belt problem, I had never seen an Air Condition Bus engine stopped more than thrice, really disappointed.
