My overall impression of Indigo, for the last decade that I flying this Airlines, is that of Faith in --- On Time Departure-&-Arrival, Discipline in everything including the Boarding (I notice that nowadays the Boarding gate even segregates the boarding process with well thought out barricades), spartan-but-functional seats, acceptably-clean cabin interiors and professional-yet-friendly cabin crews. I do not expect anything more for a 1.5 to 2 hour flight duration. I hope Indigo shall keep this up.

High time we pay attention to the aircraft cleanliness and noise. Rattling noise may not be pleasant to hear when at high altitude . . Food, I would suggest, stop it. No point of providing such quality and quantity of food. It's no meal at all. Better let the passenger buy food outside and bring it in aircraft OR you sell decent food to passengers.

Enjoyed a lot in the train. Very peaceful journey it was. Train accommodation was awesome. We arrived at Varanasi in the evening. In a word the journey was very much comfortable and it was one of the memorable train journey in my life. I suggest this place for a short duration package.

It was good travelling by train. But don't have pantry food as it's horrible and sick. Journey was good. Service was not bad. View from train is always enjoyable. I wish there is more good and faster trains though like Duronto or Rajdhani.
