No food served (Dinner) as the train starts TVC at 9:30 PM many are unaware, and there is no Pantry Car service nor food vendor comes in. My parents stayed hunger all night, the next station reaches late night so all the food stall at the station are closed. IRCTC should take some steps on this issue, they can also inform passengers while booking tickets that what they will serve and when or at least the can say its only for breakfast so that passenger is will aware.

To avoid such inconvenience in future, I recommend you to check the "Catering Charges" part of the fare. For example, for TVC-ERS sector, Catering charges are Nil. which implies that no meals will be served in this sector. I know it's IR that needs to mend ways, but till that isn't happening, let's just try our bit to make most of whatever they provide.

22207/8 - Termed as AC Superfast
This uses the dumped old AC coaches from Express / Superfast and duronto trains, coaches are not well maintained.
Dynamic Pricing as Rajdhani but the rakes are comparatively poor than any ordinary express train.
Speeded down recently. Still runs as AC Superfast - Surprise.

this train runs just for a namesake?

Hello..recently travelled by this train. It was a comfortable journey. The train on an average reaches ernakulam by 10 - 15 mins late. But will take you to Chennai dot on time by 1035 hrs. Rail aahar will be opened at ernakulam station until departure of this train. I advice to get water bottle if u board this train from ernakulam at 0035hrs. Else u have to rush to pantry at late hours for the drinking water. Also morning tea/coffee will be served by 0600hrs. And breakfast after 0800hrs. So if u need early breakfast I suggest u to carry something to munch with u. Good and clean coaches.nice travel experience.
