The bus was totally worn out. A/c was leaking all over and the bed-sheets they gave had bad smell. The screen for the windows were half. Such a terrible experience. Didn't sleep the whole night. The bus didn't have the travels name on it. And I have to search the whole Bus Stop for it.
It is always a pleasure travelling by Jet. Good, clean air crafts, smiling staff members and a good service. On time take off and before time arrival is their specialty. During Nov'14, till date I have completed flying 7 sectors by Jet Airways that shows the loyalty and trust I have with Jet Airways.
Started on time and reached on time. Bus is Volvo multi axle semi sleeper. Two TVs available but no charging point is available in the bus. Shawls and water bottles were provided. I travel by Kallada to both Bangalore and Hyderabad all the time. The half station near Salem is very good when travelling from Coimbatore.
I chose to travel from Coimbatore to Bangalore and it was sharp at 8.00 am and when I boarded the AC bus and it was OK. It was a sleeper bus so I wasn't tried of travelling. So to check the quality of the bus we went through though roads and it showed no difference. Thus, I may advise travellers to opt for this bus for travelling long distance.
