Had travlled in duranto Executive 1st ac to digha last...din't intend to do it but then weekends this train remains full..so had no choice..1st ac is just for name sake it is more dirty than regular cc..many like me were surprised when they entered inside thinking whether it was really executive class because other than 4 seats in a row with 2 on each sides there was no speciality.they gave us regular food but only thing extra was a apple was served.there is rice,rootis(thats how they mentioned it,it was packed in a neat new style foil)chicken,salads(same old),pickle,dahi,ice cream and a apple.wondering why this train takes 3 hrs when others take just 3.20 hours.other than that everything was fine.had a pleasent journey.I too feel this train is a waste on weekdays as it runs almost empty.

Sir, in First AC, I guess there isn't a fixed menu. In duronto 3AC and 2AC there are menu cards which are same as Rajdhani menu

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
