Simply awesome journey through the train. The train Akal Takht reached my destination timely. It had clean toilets, co-passengers were educated one. Only dissatisfaction which I got was Sealdah Station, were I was looking for waiting single rooms but were available only as dormitories. Seriously annoying, Railways should improve accommodation for passengers. Overall, train experience was really good.

I took an evening flight from Patna to Kolkata. The flight was around 20-25 minutes late. No complaints overall. Patna Airport is relatively small and has long queue for security clearance. Limited snacks option in the airport outlets. It would have been great if GoAir would be providing complimentary snacks to corporate travellers.
