"An excellent superfast train with very few stops but no pantry"

You are advised to stock on food and water beforehand especially if travelling by AC class as these coaches will invariably halt on one of the far ends of platforms where nothing will be available and you are advised not to venture far on the platforms as the train might start off.

First travel by flight in my life and it was memorable one, yes it was. We thoroughly enjoyed our journey and had a great experience. The flight wasn\'t delayed and made us reach Kolkata on time. The airport service of Lucknow was also awesome, it was equipped with all the facilities, food court with a reasonable price. The crowd was handled properly. Well Kolkata airport - this airport was good, so huge, clean and amazing.
