If you are planing to go Kerala, I recommend not to opt for train as the train journey is very long and boring. The toilets are not clean and the food is pathetic. It took two days for us to reach Kerala and we were literally starving as the food was a nightmare. Even the train is very slow and take much longer time than expected. If you have a good budget then go for a flight.
We took SpiceJet Airlines and timings are so convenient. We got a good offer during this timing with convenient time and our cab timings are in sync without any wastage of time. Had a good journey in SpiceJet and small journey of 1 hr of time. Had good experience by window view.
The flight was on time and was comfortable. The in flight personnel was good. Hyderabad Airport was excellent. The food in the Airport is a bit costly. Do not suggest food inside the Airport in Hyderabad. The airport at Kochin was good. We received the baggage on time.
It was a good experience. I booked the tickets two months ago thereby I really got budget tickets. Boarded in Hyderabad and got down at Cochin Airport. From there it took me around 5 hours to visit Munnar. Flight is really good and staff are supportive.
Flight journey is awesome. Ambiance in Shamshabad Airport is very cool. No delay in flight timings, flight is very prompt in travel timings while check-in luggage and even while check-out. Ticket cost is also affordable and service in the flight is also very nice.
