I got my food in the flight and the flight was so short. The travel experience was so good and nice. The service was very nice and helpful. The crew responded immediately and I got kind service. Overall experience was so good but the flight needs to be developed well to add more passengers. I was transferred to the flight by bus and it was no so nice.

Travelled as: Family

Good roads and excellent driving experience. Watch for pedestrian crossing from the dividers. Few tolls towards Chennai have a big queue. Total drive time about 6 hours including one stop for a short meal. Many coffee stops on the way if needed. A good four lane road separated by a divider.

As I have done a day travel. Travellers in the daytime can pick this train for a comfort with a/c sitting experience. The journey is like going for a good fundamental holiday experience. Thanks to the Indian government for providing such an express with a short money, time consumable..
