It was convenient and cost effective. The food served on-board was of good quality and included in the fare itself. Crew members were very helpful in terms of arranging the luggage, giving instructions on board with smiles on their faces. Overall a good hospitality. I am a frequent traveller in Air India, good show! All the best:)

The train journey is also good for budget travellers. 3rd tier AC is the better option, because the general compartments and often sleeper class also overcrowd, and the train reaches in the morning. So, it is good to enjoy the scenic beauty. And please take a journey from NJP to Darjeeling by toy train, it would be memorable. After visiting Darjeeling, then you can proceed to Gangtok.
