I was just lucky to get a killer deal flying in Indigo airlines along with my family. Clean inside, a window seat was more fun to me. Free water bottle, chocolates for kids. Air hostess was kind and they did stick to the takeoff and landing schedule. No time was wasted in this journey. Not much of entertainment in the flight as it was a low flying aircraft. I just referred to some magazines and ordered few sandwiches for the kids.
We had our own Mahindra Scorpio. We started our journey around 4 pm and highway is clear at that time by 12 pm in midnight. We reached Bangalore then the journey getting more worst. Upto Mysore road is good but after that Mysore to ooty road is terrible with rash drivers single road with lots of khaddas in it.
This route has:
Bangalore - Hyderabad Hwy/AH 43/NH 7 and AH 43/NH 7
