Journey was nice. I didn't feel any tiredness, we have reached one hour earlier than expected arrival time. Seats are good and comfortable. Movie facilities available and it engages time. I will recommend Parveen travels for good and long journeys.

It is not at all like travelling. We have boarded the train at the Right time and the train reached Hyderabad 5 min late due to some issues. Overall the travel experience is very nice. The food is delicious in the train. Everyone knows about the government service. Its very nice.

I choose IndiGo if there is no Jet flight is operating. Though IndiGo is cheaper yet on-time most of the time, the crowd it carries is huge. Another thing I don't like is the food items they serve (on chargeable basis) which will be cold always.

I would suggest IndiGo only if Jet Airways fare is more than this. The baggage handling at IndiGo will be tragedy if you are having excess baggage. You have to wait in Que for paying the excess baggage for that you need more time.

If you are flying in IndiGo you have to be there 120 minutes prior to departure to clear all this formalities.
