A very nice experience with IndiGo. We enjoyed the travel and I am a traveller since 2010. I enjoyed the flight as they are good in time management and the staff were very good and courteous. So I suggest everyone to experience the IndiGo flight. It is 2 hrs and 30 mts flight and had a stop in Kolkata for half an hour. Then again we had another 50 minutes flight. This part, they had good connecting flights.

It was cheap and good. Travelling in SpiceJet can be fun and economical at times. But for me the trouble was to coordinate with the travel agent because he spoke only Hindi. And we requested the Travel Agent to provide a driver who knows little English. However, that did not happen and it was tough communicating with the driver right from day 1 to day 5.

It is an economy flight. Comforts what I got for money was worth. Neat and clean airways. Refreshments served in-flight is good. Not that much costly, when compared with other airlines especially with Jet airways it is cheap and best. Nowadays almost all major towns are connected with this flight service. It is convenient too.
