Airlines: Indigo Airline Flight: Connecting via Hyderabad Pros: 1. On time - The flight maintained punctuality, no delay in boarding or journey 2. Availability - Available at multiple timings, have a wide variety for departures and arrivals 3. Flight duration - Very fast because no delays Cons: 1. Spaces between were very less - I was having a leg injury and it was very uncomfortable for me to accommodate there even though I am not that tall. Anybody who is around 6' or more it will be very-very uncomfortable 2. Seats not comfortable - The reclining was only around 5 degrees I think because I did't even felt that it went backward plus the cushions were also very hard. Couldn't have travelled for 2. 5 Hrs or more in those seats 3. No complimentary food ;-) - Can't say but I love these thing ...
Train was good but has too much halt and long halt make the journey very long. Pantry is not in the train but you can get food any time due to various vendors. Housekeeping was very good as 3 times a day cleaning was done. And they had taken our feedback also.
My overall travel experience by flight was awesome. As we know travelling by flight is always exciting. We started travelling from Bangalore at 5 pm and reached Nagpur at 8. The flight co-ordinator was good and took total responsibility of every passenger. They were trying and also helped each and every passenger.
There is flight in morning at 6.25 am so you don't lose a day, there is return flight at 9.25 pm so get the entire day. It's no frills flight hence we need carry our own breakfast. You can further travel from Nagpur to any of Jungle location by Car. It take close to 5-6 hrs to reach Kanha and route is via the Pench forest. Please don't take any other route because you may end up spending close 7-8 hours unnecessarily.
Rajdhani express was comfortable, good suspension, fast travelling, limited stop, thus I booked 3rd AC. The service, food, bathrooms were good and the workers were co-operative and at last overall experience was good. Train was not late and people travelling in the train were also good.
