I book the tickets for my parents both above 80. When I requested for wheel chair at the counter outside the departure, the lady was discourteous and just turned down. I had booked and sent them many times and this is the first time I saw rude behaviour. Then I engaged a porter, sent them in and arranged wheel chair at check in counter. The lady who rejected needs to spoligise for treating senior citizens of above 80 shabbily.

Overall average . Cabin crew behaviour was like nurses in government hospital . Namesake working . Chennai airport maintenance is worst . May be because of my late night travel. I saw all working tiered and careless

This is just a one time experience. I often travel and always avail wheelchair service which is always been a very good experience. This time it took a lot of time to arrange a wheelchair and quite a lot of tension prevailed. Although the staff tried their best to ensure I check-in and get the boarding pass and board the flight on time, I was a little concerned this time about the helpers not being available at noon time althogh the wheelchair was precooked. No complaints as such but a word of caution to ensure that helpers and wheelchairs are available, I go for a flight despite the price factor because of need. Other than that thanks for the support as always.

From Bengaluru, up to Krishnagiri, many tolls need to be paid. At Krishnagiri, you have to take a left to go to Chennai. If you miss it, the road will take you to Salem. Before Krishnagiri itself on the left you get Krishna, cafe coffee day, mcdonalds etc in one complex. Both oldies had idli vada at Krishna, the youngsters had mcdonalds carry bag and coffee . One can see temple at Hosur, Krishnagiri fort, Yelagiri hills near Vaniyambadi, dry Palar river and many medical and engineering colleges on the way . . Though the highway was 6 lanes, there were few villages and pedestrian crossing that slowed down the speed. Once you enter the city, the traffic was heavy and the roads were not all that good . There were Murugan idli and Kumbakonam degree coffee chain on the way. Sais and Sharavana Bhavans were also there. No need to carry any food or snack. All varieties are available. Clean toilets are also were available. Petrol stations had all sorts of facilities. Nice road to take road trip.

We were staying at Leela Palace. So we thought this is the nearest beach and we will enjoy it more . But this was also like marina with horses taking you for a ride, all kind of games like shooting balloons, all sorts of eateries like chips, sundal, bonda, bajji, etc. Though there is a walkway...more »
