My flight from Bangalore to Cochin on a Spicejet was absolutely enthralling, with indifferent air hostesses who was most probably spending time praying or meditating or so and an antique piece of aircraft with recliner buttons which used to work", and with seats which even had no recliner buttons at all. Instead they had the proverbial black hole ...
A captain who sounded like he was relaxing by the sandy beach, or the Emperor Nero who was playing harp while his country burned ...
Anyway, I'm alive after travelling in an antique aircraft and neanderthal staff.
Ain't that a proof for my luck?

There's no point describing an hour long flight, it was pretty standard with some quick sandwich service as well. But the key point, if you book well in advance, you will get fares for as low as 1200 per head !!
Being an early morning flight, you would be at your hotel before noon, so you get most of the day.

The city serves as a connecting hub for places like Kumarakom, Allepey, Munnar, Thekkady etc which are all within 3-4 hours drive at max.

I had a peaceful on time Journey without any delays. Few fellow travellers were too noisy and kept on speaking till late night and early morning. I am not sure about the train having pantry car but there are lot of food, tea, coffee vendors and also train stops at many stations. It's a recommended train for overnight journey.

I feel indigo is one of the best options to choose in air travel. I am really impressed by their timings and hospitality. No much noise during fly. I recommend indigo to travel.
Bangalore airport has good facilities and cleanliness. But, please be careful when you travel with aged parents as the escalators are really dangerous and no attendant will be around to help in emergency.
I personally experienced, an aged women in the airport fell down from escalator and I ran back to help her. And no attendant was bothered to stop the escalator. The old lady was badly injured and her wrist was broken.
Please take aged parents/elders in lift only. Do not use escalators. This is the only request to all of you.
