Travellers who opted for non-vegetarian meal were served omlette with rusk, juice, butter and jam. “We know of omlette-bread or pav combination, but have never heard of omlette-toast. How can senior citizens have rusk with omlette,” asked Ramesh Nevalkar, 68, who was travelling to Kudal.

Vegetarians were served upma with rusk, a cup cake, tea mix, juice, butter and jam. “The food was disappointing. Upma was tasteless, so we returned it,” said a woman.

Some had issues with the timing too. “The quantity is not much. We were told it would be a meal. Also, the breakfast was served at 8.30am, which is too late considering some had to leave home at 3am to board the train,” said Bhakti Masurkar, a Goregaon resident.

Corn flakes was an addition on the menu in the executive class.

The tea and coffee vending machines, too, were nowhere to be seen . “Despite the fares being higher than Rajdhani and Shatabdi, we were just provided breakfast, not lunch,” sajd Mahesh Pavaskar, a journalist from Mumbai, who on a vacation.

The WiFi, too, is limited to single executive coaches.

Some passengers complained the lever of their seats was not moving smoothly.
