Train journey to Aurangabad and convenient timing

Aug 31, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

This train was suitable to my time schedule. We travelled in AC chair car. The seats were not much comfortable. The journey is took 7 hours instead of scheduled time but it was okay. The scenery from the train was good. You have to pay for the food on the go so be prepared ahead. Toilets were clean.

The roads aren't great due the constructions

Aug 13, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

The road from Mumbai to Aurangabad is not very great - especially, there were constructions happening at many places - so the path was diverted through small roads. Also, there aren't good restaurants on the way! There is a good restaurant outside Elora Caves. Can see lot of cotton, onion farms on the way! We stopped by at a farm and the uncle-aunt who owned the farm gave us onion, tomato, coriander, in a very cheap rate and also with lots of love! Do visit these farms and experience true human relationships!

Mode of Transport: Flight

I am a Gold Jet Privilege Member. This airline always is my first choice to travel by air. Very good in cabin crew and mostly flights are on time. They provide good lounge facility to the guests. A one of the best award scheme for their frequent fliers.

Only convenient flight in the early evenings

Mar 28, 2015
Mode of Transport: Flight

The only convenient flight is in the early evening, but this is by ATR Aircraft with all its limitations of space. Pleasant flight with excellent in-flight service. Familiar problem of complete lack of lounge facilities at Mumbai Airport since boarding is from ground floor.
