- #2614I agree with your point. Flight travel is quick and short but somehow I prefer flight travel over trains for short distances like Kochi to Bangalore or Bangalore to Mumbai. For any journeys up to 500km, I prefer trains since I can sleep overnight in the train comfortably. In case of flights, even though it takes only 1 to 2 hours for such flights, the time taken to reach the airport, waiting time in the airport and also the hassles for security check etc are pretty high. In case of trains, you can just walk into the train and occupy your birth.
- #2645Both air travel and train travel has advantages and disadvantages..But in our country the train facilitates are bad...
- #2649I would always prefer Air travel if I need to travel between metro cities like Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai or Chennai. This is because the travel time (not more than 5-6 hours including airport transfers and check in procedures without any flight delay) is much less than the time taken by the trains. Also airfare is cheaper between the metro cities comparing to other cities or town.
On the other hand, I would love to take a train if my destination is an overnight journey away. The tickets can be booked well in advance to get the reservation and travel comfortably. You can just have your dinner and enjoy a good sleep before reaching your place in the morning.
