Getting a confirmed ticket in this train from various Remote Locations is almost impossible since the Remote Location Quota gets exhausted on the opening day of bookings itself. Also confirmation of RLWL tickets is very difficult. Meanwhile the berths from General Quota take long time to fill up. So if you are looking for confirmed berths or atleast RAC always book from Payangadi/PAZ as it offers General Quota.

Please do not travel in this train. Not at all clean, safe especially for women passengers and also kids they'll definitely fall ill. A.C is like ewww right from ernakulam!!! A.C is good in trains like kerala sampark kranti, rajdhani than this one. This train back then used to be so clean when we used to board from Nasik. For mumbaikars netravati is so much better than mangala(in all terms) or kerala sampark kranti even much better.

POhed but Old coaches, very less coaches with Charging points on bays, some with on ends, some coaches don't have it.
Carrying a power bank/spare battery is recommended for long distance travel.
