I din't find any problem in the service provided, but the only thing which I could complaint is that the service I book was A/C seater and it was changed to A/C sleeper. I generally don't prefer sleepers. They provided the WiFi but I don't think it was working.

Boarded the bus on 23-May-15 11 Pm at Koyambedu. It was an A/C sleeper. But A/C was not adequate. I could not even feel the A/C. I even asked the bus staff to increase AC. But he refused t. Even though it was a night journey, Bus stopped at 2 places and the staff was shouting and woke up all the passengers who was sleeping.

Bangalore is one destination most guys love to. If that's the case imagine going with friends on a weekend. As a icing to the cake. Its a ROAD TRIP. How can I explain in words the time and joy we had from the start to the end.

The most economical way to have full fun and joy. Is road trip with friends. We three of us drove the vehicle for few hours in rotational basis and reached our place with most comforts. Took breaks for lunch, coffee and natures call. Wow. Trip is always awesome with friends and enjoyed every moment.

Guys. Try road trip and you will see the real meaning of fun, friends, sharing and life.

Air India is really a nice airline. It is very homely as well as fantastic. There is no complaint whatsoever. It is a complete service. The morning munching are very good. Being an international flight, it is always on time or before. It starts at 6 am and reaches at around 6.40 am. You are in the city by 7.30 am for the day's work. The flight take-off as well as landing is very gentle and the pilot is always very caring. The crew is very helping and empathetic. Thanks Maharaja for the royal service as well as the royal travel.

Mode of Transport:Train
It is better to pick this train as it always starts on time and arrives on time. The tracks cover the shortest journey time. Along the way it stops at Arrakonam, Vellore, Bangarpet, Cantonment. Alongside it passes through few borders of Andhra Pradesh.
