Good efforts by all of you. In the news article even the photo credits of Somanko has been mentioned. Few queries in case these have been taken up.
(1) Any updates in frequency increase or time change of 18189/18190
(2) What are they saying about the punctuality issue. While trains are getting delayed in SECR, even there is always delay in JSG-ROU-Tata stretch as well. For example Ispat exp towards Howrah generally gets delayed in this stretch

By 2024 election you can expect VB in many more places. There are more in pipeline in Odisha, Bengal and Jharkhand as well. I have seen with all new concept trains. There is always a sense of novelty and excitement with new categories of trains. Then over a period of time it becomes regular. We have seen that with Tejas, Humsafar,Duronto and so on

This is good. Only thing that might be a hitch is arrival of VB, Shatabdi and Vrindavan around peak hours at Chennai. While Shatabdi & Vrindavan already are arriving at that time, not sure if MAS can accommodate VB at 22hrs. Of course given the priority and importance ideally should not be an issue.

Yes already lots of issues highlighted with regard to the train. Seating seems to be a major talking points ( hard seats, handrest at a very low level) and now the timings. Because of the Vande Bharat train, now local train passengers are complaining about their trains being made to halt at WFD and Kengeri to allow overtake of Vandebharat

I boarded it once and that was the first official run after inaugration and also a Saturday. From Mys to SBC train was relatively vacant. Good crowded boarded from SBC travelling towards Chennai but even after that when one took a walk across all the coaches there were quite a few coaches which were almost empty

Good to hear that. If it is all days then even better but I would still be surprised to see full occupancy given that Double Decker, Vande Bharat, Vrindavan just run one behind the other in such a small gap

For passengers who are not concerned with a bot of extra travel time and wants to spend lesser money, DD, Vrindavan are much better options. And to be honest the unanimous feedback from lot of people has been too much charged for food in Vande Bharat with very little options. In case of DD and Vrindavan at least you get tea which is made along with other better snack options. I case of VB it is powdered tea mix and samosas etc are loaded from SBC towards MAS and heated and given around 4:30pm-5pm.

It is almost sure that before next general elections, many other routes will also have Vande Bharat trains. At least before doing that hope they rectify the issues with the existing Vande Bharat. Lots of complaints in the seating . The seats are very uncomfortable. Attaching one of the tweets which had come in few days ago
