Guwahati was our next destination after Kolkata. I have already booked 2nd AC Sleeper 7 seat well in advance through IRCTC. We started after noon and reached next day morning about 10.30 a.m. Train was late about 3 hours which generally occurs with Indian Railways. Overall a harassment free journey. Kolkata is only Railway station where you can go with Car/Taxi to Platform.

The flight provided by airlines was small, there was complimentary meal provided which was tasty. The seats were uncomfortable and the flight was making ample amount of noise which was little disturbing. There is no in flight entertainment though it is not required for short time of flight.

Jet Airways is always a fine airlines to travel with. All their staff members are caring, and if any help required, then they are happy to help us. The most remarkable thing is they are offering inflight food free of cost. The cost of ticket is also low in comparison to Indigo Airlines & Spicejet. This was a return ticket flight for me.
