Always opt for AC class in this train 12801 as well as 12802.
If AC doesn't suit your pocket, always try for upper or side upper berth in sleeper class.
Don't even dare to take a LB or SLB because you will struggle for your own seat in GAYA-MGS & MZP- ALD section and vice-versa

Booking Preference Tip.
If you have to travel from Delhi to Coastal Odisha , then your train availability searching priority should as: (For SL class)
1. Purushottam express (No doubt about this train;Book this as your 1st preference)
2. BBS Duronto express (only for Bhubaneswar people ; Punctuality is poor; But very safe and secure as no unreserved or daily travellers are allowed to
...
more...
board)
3. Odisha Sampark Kranti express (Puctuality is poor but its better bcoz NO unreserved or WL crowd boards this train due to Least halts in UP)
4. Nandan Kanan express (Better than neelanchal bcoz takes shorter route; punctuality is poor but seat availibility is better than Neelanchal)
5. Neelanchal Express (You will hardly get CNF seat in this train; Very demanded train as its the only train connecting Central UP with Odisha & puri)
6. Hirakund Express (Takes the shortest route; Good punctuality; but problem is its speed and total time taken; Huge number of halts and unreserved & Daily travellers board this in SL class)
7 ANVT BBS weekly express (Train best suited for Western Odisha; takes 2nd longest route and punctuality is poor ;Not much beneficial for coastal odisha)
8. Kalinga Utkal express (This should be the least preferred for travelling to coastal odisha; Very slow and heavy crowded throughout the route with Unreserved , WL and Daily travellers;Maintenance is below average;Takes the Longest route so that whole northern coastline of odisha is covered but still takes hell lot of time;Don't take SL class in this train unless have NO other option)
Now For AC classes,
Only opt Rajdhani or Purushottam. Getting seat in BBS rajdhani is easier and journey would be punctual.

Punctuality very good ??? Kya bol dia aapne sir...Its Excellent. Balasore pe Utkal aur Purushottam do train aati hain at midnight from Delhi, but Puru majority 1-1.30hr delay rehti hai but Utkal humesha ontime.
But kharabi yeh hai ki Koi leta hi nahi hai from Delhi to Coastal odisha. Itna circular journey kaun kare. ;)
Western odisha jyada prefer karte hain Utkal.

Thats right...ECoR ne more faster ANVT BBS SF de di for western odisha, but woh kabhi bhi on time nahi chalti. Always 4-5hrs delay.
But this old horse Utkal always stay on time whatever be the season. Best preferred by Wetern odisha only.

Yes...the pantry standard is average below standard.....Instead good pantry is present in Odisha sampark kranti which serves good quality food as per my last journey experience.
But then we have to compromise on Punctuality factor if we check on pantry quality.

delhi to Odisha travelling people don't like Utkal exp but the people of MP , specially from jabalpur side (Boarding from Katni) and going to Balasore-Bhadrak, people still prefer Kalinga Utkal due to its punctual and direct route.
End to End people don't prefer but Intermediate travellers prefer it very much due to its good seat availability.

The reason is absolute stoppage of starting any new train for odisha.
The last train that was started for odisha to north india was ANVT BBS Weekly SF which was for Western Odisha on the same departure slot as of Odisha Sampark kranti.
After that till now there is NO trains started. All the RM have completely ignored to connect Puri , a one of the Biggest tourist destination with Jammu-Katra or Haridwar or Amritsar North Indian cities.

Problem with Hirakund is Huge Number of Halts and very slow TT with Heavy inflow of MST/UR travellers between Delhi-Bina.
Whereas in nandan Kanan , the rush is bit less as compared to Hirakund....If ECoR somehow Speed up Hirakund express (which is easily possible) , then i would say it can climb up to atleast Rank 2.

Problem is that a train with as much halts as Hirakud will need little more slack...
I wont deny that its not feasible...
Ofcourse its feasible, at the same time too much halts should be removed.
P.S: removing stops aint that easy :P :P

But we ppl of Balasore could never see TKD WAP-7 of Utkal exp as both up and down trains arrive here late at night... isliye hum Rajdhani k WAP-7 se kaam chala lete hain... so till now only 2 trains of Odisha r getting WAP-7 from start to end... Duronto ko kabhi kabhi as an offlink mil jati hai WAP-7 but very rarely..Purushottam should get it upto Puri instead upto KGP..

MGS to ALD ...SL is superpacked
ALD to GZB.... rare RAC double occupancy seen....few WL pax sleeping

in floor spaces between berth in compartments, but corridors/spaces near doors/toilets are not crowded (Ive seen shorter distance trains like PR.,SG,ALD Duronto,Mahabodhi are horribly crowded in almost every run..great nuisance for CNF seat pax in SL in these trains)

If you wish to travel from TATANAGAR and getting high WL, try from KHARAGPUR because TATA comes in RLWL while KGP in GNWL and change your boarding point accordingly.

There is no direct connectivity between MB, BE to Puri. For LKO there is only 3 days connectivity. Excluding purushottam there is almost daily connectivity from CNB, ALD. So it should be diverted via NDLS-MB-LKO-SLN-BSB-MGS. This new route is completely electrified so there is no problem for loco change. Slot can be like this NDLS d 21:35, MB a 0:18, d 0:25, BE a1:42, d1:45, LKO a5:00,d 5:10, SLN a 7:13, d 7:15, BSB a 9:30, d 9:40, MGS a10:20, rest slot remains same.

#BookingTip.
If wish to travel from Tatanagar to Delhi , and getting heavy waiting list or regret in this train for SL class, then Book Kharagpur to New delhi and change boarding point to Tatanagar.
Tata is in RLWL quota whereas KGP is in GNWL quota, thus having more chance of confirmation or atleast getting RAC if take GNWL below 60-70 in Sleeper class.

Flight kise pasand hai ?
Train ka apna alag mazaa hota hai...Flight is a Boredom and very hassled travelling option & i always keep it as the LAST MOST option.
For travelling to Odisha , i always prefer Rajdhani for AC and Odisha Sampark kranti for SL class. I also don't prefer Purushottam due to crowd and awkward timings at BLS.
