Travelling through jet airways is always a pleasure. Passengers have the benefit of having tasty hot food. The staff at the flight are very courteous. The airports at both cities are very good. Jet airways operate flights at convenient times and have an excellent connectivity to across the world.

I was travelling to Bangalore this time around in a bus for a change, it is a different story that I have used most of the other options for reaching this destination.

But this option was good because I was travelling in the night and I did not pick a ac because it reaches early in the morning to Bangalore always has a lovely early morning weather and I took the KSRTC bus with two sleeper sets with total privacy curtains and the journey was so smooth that I never found that we have reached a breakpoint so fast and after refreshment the rest of the journey was also very comfortable. In short I liked the journey and would certainly recommend to business or official persons to take this journey which I am sure will recharge them in no time when they reach the destination.

Total expense incurred is Rs 1000 but the facilities provided are reasonable compared to the cost incurred so its affordable to all and the journey time has been passed out by watching movie and the hotel at stopping place is also good. It is very convenient to go in the bus.

I really liked the train journey in Brindavan express where the seatings were top notch and i really liked the foods inside the train they were upto my expectations.

We can easily sit comfortably and there is a lot of space in between the rows and we can have a nice breeze as the fans were working up to the mark.

There were around 6 fans for every columns and around 12 members can sit and enjoy the ride.

I really liked the samosa in jolarpettai station on the way to bangalore.

If i go via this station I am sure I will buy samosa.

They were selling Idly's, Dosa, Pongal and vada and cool drinks like pepsi, coke etc.

Water bottles were neatly packed and cheap so even low class people can afford.

Toilets were not up to the mark but way more than my expectations.

As its a day time travel i don't have time for checking the beds.

Really loved the journey.

It was raining out side very heavily and the AC was high. It was shivering and the bus service dint even provide a blanket for courtesy. It did not stop for lady passengers for toilet breaks and did not stop for dinner as well. The service was pathetic that day.
