I got my food in the flight and the flight was so short. The travel experience was so good and nice. The service was very nice and helpful. The crew responded immediately and I got kind service. Overall experience was so good but the flight needs to be developed well to add more passengers. I was transferred to the flight by bus and it was no so nice.

As I have done a day travel. Travellers in the daytime can pick this train for a comfort with a/c sitting experience. The journey is like going for a good fundamental holiday experience. Thanks to the Indian government for providing such an express with a short money, time consumable..

We always prefer to travel by train to long distances as we have kids. Kids enjoyed the train travelling. It is worth taking foods with you from home while travelling by train to avoid unnecessary stomach problem. Toilets were not that clean but not in very bad condition, only manageable. Always not safe to take food from strangers. Be careful and enjoy the travel by train.

This train is considered as royal by people taking this train as it is fast and always on time as other local trains has to wait for this to take the rail first and preference was always given to this on the rail lines along its path. The seats is very neat and comfortable. They don't have pantry inside but food can be ordered. Kodai road station which is foot of Mount Kodaikanal comes on the way. Fruits like banana and veg like carrots from the mountain were often sold at this station. Dindugal station is said to be famous for milk. Don't buy packed snacks as they may have expired.
