Train Journey Vs Air travel: Pros and Cons

Both Air Travel and Train journey have their own pros and cons, and each of us will have their own bias. I had a train journey after a long time, some time back, and it was refreshing. I realized that I had been missing it since a long time. Still, we cannot discount advantages of Air Travel in many respects.

Let us go through the Pros and Cons of both.

Where does An Air journey scores over the Train journey:

1.The savings in traveling time on an air journey makes the air travel make it a better option for most of the Business purpose, and many a personal and other work.
2.From an Indian point of view, Airlines and Airports are cleaner, there is a feel of better luxury, more shopping options and more hygienic though the situation is changing now rapidly.
3.Many of the Airlines have their rewards programs, and Trains have yet to replicate these, though with the current rail Minister in India, things might change for the Trains.

Train Journey: It is unrivaled by Air Flight in these respects:

Train Journey still scores over Air Travel in many respects:
1.Cost-Differential: Often Sleeper class and even Second Class Air conditioned (AC)journey in trains can be one-third of the cost of a flight- implying good savings for those on tight budget.
2.The amazing countryside views that one gets to see during a train journey, the mountains and seas at a distance- does not let one forget the experience. Can one get such an experience in a Flight?
Many people tell that the best way to experience countryside views are by a train journey.
3.Different foods at different platforms across different states is also a truly unique experience.
4.Intermingling of people from various cultures is also a big bonus in train journeys.

Overall for a more pleasurable experience go for a train journey but for speed and time save, a air travel might be a better option.
