100% agree bhai. I'm seeing this trend even in my family and friends. Till 1 year back even for regular travel, most of my family and frnds used to take 12424 for KIR but after dynamic pricing 80% of them have shifted to NHLN SF or Sampurna Kranti/KIR IC combo and rest others to flight..
Trend more popular for south India. e.g. Banglore to Delhi without dynamic fare costs around 3k. With 200 seats left, you have to pay 3.8k including dynamic fare. For that fare, people have more than 10 different flights to choose from. Why will they choose train? . I still remember the "overconfidence" with which Indian Railways in their press release wrote that "We believe that we will retain their passenger pool". Ha ha What a joke it was!
Bhai the Indian govt has always took Rajdhani/Duronto/Shatabdi travellers for granted. Every hike for AC assuming they dont have options. But aal the Shatabdi routes have cheaper Bus routes running with equally comfortable Volvos. For longer route Flights used this opportunity to max. Is sarakr ko koi bataye ki gareeb majbur hai. The AC traveller have all the info on finger tips and cant be taken for a ride. Serves them right. Let air policy Udaan come in full force. Except for festivals in Oct-Nov the surge will make Railway bleed loses through noses.
Somebody said it right, the surge pricing is the only way through which Railways will ensure seats to everyone by 2020. Middle class and Poor people majburi mein pay karenge. Baki log flight ko switch kar lenge. Anyway, Delhi mein AC office mein baithne wale logo ko kya samajh mein aayega day to day problems of passengers.
These are LHB Coaches but outurrn report suggests that Self Generating CBC Deen Dayalu coaches have been produced so either it would be used to run an Antayodaya Express our will be augmented in any CBC Coupled train.
