Indigo is very punctual. Srinagar Airport is not up to the mark. The toilets were not clean. Inside too much of flies. Security people were very efficient. As the security is very tight there should be food stalls etc; inside the Airport because passengers check-in early to get security clearance quickly.

Delhi Airport must have a few more medicine shops for frequent fliers.

On 11-09-2015 INDIGO Flight 6E 209 the Captain hardly interacted with the passengers, the landing in Kolkata was bumpy. The cabin crew was more interested in serving people who were buying foods and ignored people asking for water. This I have noticed in most of the flights of INDIGO where the cabin crew delay serving water. They should be made to realise that when a passenger asks for water, may be it is his/her absolute need. But overall performance of INDIGO is good.

The place has historical value. It was established a long time back. I was not in a position to ascertain the dates. The place is peaceful. Muslims offer their prayers here.

Mode of Transport:Train
Overall travel experience was good. Though train was late. But train was clean. We got one lower berth and one upper. Pantry car food was average. We enjoyed the journey very much. You can use this train if you want to start from Kolkata. But transport system of Kolkata Station is not good. So you should take taxi to reach Kolkata Station.

During my Christmas holiday I went to Kashir with my family and I travelled by bus. I stayed their for 7 days and enjoyed a lot with my family. I was so excited and visited many places. All was just outstanding and started my travel from Calcutta and it was a good and a comfortable bus though for tight budget the bus was a non AC bus.
