Awesome train trip to Shimla


We had a good time in the train but had to wait for a long time as it was delayed. Finally we got into the train and spent a good time and had fun with the co-passengers. We ate food which we bought from home and also shared food with the co-passengers and spoke to TT and got our tickets corrected and had a nice berth to sleep. It’s a window berth and also gave place to the people who did not have the tickets confirmed unluckily. Well the train trip was awesome.

Air India service was amazing


As usual Air India brings you services at a reasonable cost. As it is an enterprise government so no need to bother. In spite of government you may feel an excellent service over there in the flight. The journey was never horrific but was quiet romantic. I boarded the flight at Shamshabad heading towards New Delhi and from there to Shimla by bus and remaining distance by train.

Overall the journey was very nice


From Shamshabad airport we travelled by Air India AI 127 and the flight left to Delhi evening at 9 PM and arrived Delhi at 23.10, there we stayed in a Hotel and following day morning at 9.50 AM we left to chandigarh by AI 864 and around 11 AM we reached there, and from there we started our journey by a car booked by the Hotel. Overall the journey was very nice.

Crew member weren\'t responding immediately


The Shamshabad Airport is really big with places for shopping at the airport. The Delhi Airport is very huge and having a lot of international brands and good place for people who love to shop. Comparatively with private airlines the Air India staff are very egoistic, even the flight is totally vacant the staff are not responding immediately. If the service is as good as the Jet, Spiceet and Indigo, definitely they will become top airlines in India.

Decent option to travel and carry food


It is good a medium way but since it is a long journey on need to take sufficient rest while travelling and do not take the food of the dhabas because the quality is very bad and toilets are not so well-maintained, so take sufficient amount of food with you when travelling.
