    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.

    Over the last month, several enhancements have been made to the IRI Atlas. Following are the salient points: . 1. Previously, the tracks were crude with many straight line segments. Only on clicking on the individual tracks, it would assume a finer form. Now, the tracks are refined even on the overview...

i realize more people will travel if what you say is done. The point is show me the figure work... If there are 500 non rajdhani First AC or First Ac hybrid bogies running and you want to replace them by 500 second AC/Third AC/Sleeper bogies for 2 months in summer...Then where will you get these new 500 coaches from? Will you keep the 500 IAC coach in the shunting yeards for two months? How much will be the increase in revenue foir the railways if this is done? Try answering all these questions....

Similar experiecne was with my brother.
Earlier he was very exited to travel by flight from any corner to delhi(where he used to work)
Later he had noticed following with flight.
1.journey time is too less that he has go office again.
2.since he is not tired, they used to give im immediate work.
So, saying company to save money, he started using rajdhanis from TVC, BBS etc, which take 2 days. further, he may have one more night of rest.
This is funny story he used to narrate for us.

It can save some space in IR for common man.
Further, I suppose amenities and hospitality are very good at airports and in flights compared to railways.

your brother is right in a fast paced work life, if we want rest then increasing the journey time is great... as one grows older the need for more rest increases in many if not most individuals

you are right, tejas del-kochi is the longest at around 3 hours. my data related to the days when the flight to kochi was via mumbai...and the A300 took 2hrs30 to Chennai...Now the A321 takes 2hrs 45 to Chennai and 3hrs to COK. One thing I have learnt is to check the aircraft type...when it cmes to time taken

Both Sri Sudhir and the brother Sri Bhanu Teja have directly opposite reasons for preferring train journey. But both are realistic and acceptable. It all depends on whose time/money you are earning/spending. When you have targets to achieve on your own then Sri Sudhir is the model. When one has to work to achieve targets fixed by someone else then Sri Bhanu Teja's brother is right.
In my case I prefer train journeys for both the above two reasons depending on the prevailing situation on that particular occasion.
In the case of Coimbatore to Chennai, I can reach my office in flat eight hours if travel by duranto or intercity as my residence and office at both the ends are within 2-4 km from

the railway station. But the flight also takes almost the same time 5-6 hours depending on the time of journey, when the distance to the airport and the traffic are taken into account
