I had travel through Indigo airline to and fro.... Very helpful and was ready to take an extra mile to support their client. Journey was good and the air hostess in the flight was friendly specially with my kid which i was able to handle through My waiting at the airport was good.... There were many shops which would help us to pass our time through.... the rates at these shops are way too high. Request you to reduce the prices so that if we are interested we can purchases items there toooo The services provided during the flight and boarding were Hassle free.... Will request for more food options to choose from

It was nice journey. Enjoyed with friends in train during journey. Food was not upto the mark. Toilets were in bad in condition. Coaches were not in clean condition. The entire railway system needs to be modified. Cleanliness, quality of pantry car food items needs to reviewed.

I normally travel by Godavari Express from Hyderabad to Vizag. Very neat and clean train, runs as per schedule. The train timings are very good for those who travel for office/business related work. But booking has to be done at least before 3 weeks.
