Travel experience was fine with good hospitality service of Jet Konnect airlines. As it was a jumbo jet plane so they took somewhat longer time than expected to take off, which was little bit dissatisfactory, rest of the experience was good. So travel was affordable smooth and comfortable experience
The train was simply amazing. Took AC 2 Tier and it felt like home. No piece of garbage could be seen in the train around. The service was on time just half an hour of difference than what was prescribed. But, it didn't have any pantry car so had to arrange bad food from various stops.
Even after making the booking 60 days in advance our tickets were not confirmed till the last day. Just 2 hours before departure I received the confirmation sms from IRCTC. We were overjoyed and made the packing hurriedly. The travel was so exciting and we all enjoyed the train journey. Kids enjoyed so much and made new friends in the train. It was like a family affair inside the train compartment where everybody was enjoying to their fullest.
