The train takes very less time to Guwahati and is very punctual with very less stoppage. Service is moderate. Food and coaches are good. Seats are comfortable. AC is good and was on time. TT was very helpful. Speed is very fast like Rajdhani express.

Jet Airways is always a fine airlines to travel with. All their staff members are caring, and if any help required, then they are happy to help us. The most remarkable thing is they are offering inflight food free of cost. The cost of ticket is also low in comparison to Indigo Airlines & Spicejet. This was a return ticket flight for me.

Guwahati was our next destination after Kolkata. I have already booked 2nd AC Sleeper 7 seat well in advance through IRCTC. We started after noon and reached next day morning about 10.30 a.m. Train was late about 3 hours which generally occurs with Indian Railways. Overall a harassment free journey. Kolkata is only Railway station where you can go with Car/Taxi to Platform.

"Good train but runs twice in a week "

Departure was on time and arrival at Guwahati was also on time. This is a good train but it operates only twice in a week. Saraighat Express is the best train to reach Guwahati. But if someone is planning a holiday in advance air travel is the best mode of transport to Guwahati. My planning was sudden, hence could not get air tickets.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
