Very Good. Many shops and cafe\'s on both airports. Good atmosphere overall. Flight was ontime. So there was no problem boarding the flight. Reached the destination ontime. Hassle free boarding process. Inflight services was good. Indigo airlines is one of the best airlines in India having ontime performance.

This was to only convenient train and the timings were suitable. The journey was a comfortable in spite of it being too long. The toilets were clean and the cooling system was good. The route that the journey took was through I think four states. Andhra and Maharastra was dry. Karnataka and Tamilnadu did offer some fine scenery.




"Good journey and was on time "

A good and on-time experience. Only the long waiting at Hyderabad Airport with a infant was not easy. Also the small plane from Madurai to Hyderabad should be avoided so take the Madurai-Chennai-Mumbai route. At Hyderabad Airport it maybe a Southern eaters delight but for North Indians (specially Veg) the choices are limited.

Yes jet airways gives you that feeling of love and warmth. Good food on board, excellent crew service support and ground staff, and added advantage is that you earn jet privilege miles. I prefer jet airways for travelling because of their best service support staff.
