I recently took a round trip from Bangalore to Bhopal, Bhopal to New Delhi, New Delhi to Howrah and Howrah to Bangalore. I would want to put forth my experience in AC First Class experience across this route.
First Trip Bengaluru Rajdhani from SBC to BPL. Was allocated a four cabin block for two people whereas there are families who had 4 people and there were all scattered. TT was the most unhelpful, passengers had to coordinate amongst themselves and settled properly. Food the least said the better, had to call the pantry manager to get the right quality and variety of food as mentioned in the menu. Bed roll quality bearable.
Trip Karnataka Express from BPL to NDLS. Boarded the train at midnight. Had to wait for 1 hour to get the bed roll which had to be changed 4 times due to poor quality. Attendant was the most rude ever seen. Interiors in the train 100% times better than Bengaluru Rajdhani express.
Third Trip Howrah Rajdhani from NDLS to HWH. The best of the lot experience. Spic and span towels, bed rolls, Attendant paid personal attention, Food was best of the lot, pantry staff ready to deviate a bit from the menu to suit the elderly lady (my mother). Spic and span toilet. Best part which I have not seen in other Rajdhanis travelled is the display board which clearly displays the speed, passing station, time to next destination.Allocated 2 cabin for 2 people correctly.
Last Trip YPR Duronto from HWH to YPR. Utterly disgusting, food table all unstable, no variety and horrible taste of food, toilet watery throughout the trip, Attendant happily snoring than servicing, pantry staff more interested in tips than service. No generator leading to no AC service till Kharagpur as battery had to be charged before cooling. Sitting in steamy 2 seater cabin
Mr Prabhu do something about service even if it means raising the price of the ticket.

1a fare is already above business class of flights. Increasing fare will not help. People should be taken to task. Increasing accountability will

You have contradicted many who believe a miracle is happening in Railways.
Even i had to tweet several time during my SBC Rajdhani, YPR-HWH Exp/Duronto for menu deviation, short supply, overcharging, Tip demand etc and all the time IR leaked my PNR to PC manager that followed big drama in coach.
In reality nothing much has changed.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
