I prefer train than flights, you get a chance to meet a lot of people and get to eat local food ... Very relaxed journey ... Train starts from Chennai and reaches Pune in convenient timings. Pune Pre Paid auto people also cheat, beware. They charged me 70 bucks for less than a km to hotel where minimum one third of it. In Pune always be prepared for bumper t bumper traffic and plan your commute accordingly.

Treated well. Gave the seat number based on my wish depends on the availability. Guided very well regarding the boarding point. Given proper update on weather at frequent interval of time. Food is excellent in taste. They have afforded window seat based on my request, outside view is excellent. Given proper guidelines with respect to safety. They were very much precautionary on fastening the seat belts on both landing and takeoff. Magazines were available based on the request. Foods are at affordable cost with good in taste.

GoAir served 2 big sandwich packs but the quality was very bad and I had food poisoning the next day. They need to improve on the quality of the food.

The airline was always on time and very convenient for travelling. The airports were all upto the mark with all facilities and maintained very well. The shops and the cafes were a bit costly but affordable ones which kept us busy. The taxis and other modes of transport were available outside the airport. The journey was awesome one in which we felt very comfortable with the service provided.
