Hi first time poster here.
My friend and I are booked onto 16381 KANYAKUMARI EXP on 02 july 2012 at 1545. We are currently W/L 10 & W/L 11 and W/L 18PQWL & W/L 19PQWL. We are booked for 3a. What are the chances of us getting this train? We really need to be on this train so don't know whether to book a flight just in case as it is refundable. Will we bumped up to 2A if 2 beds become available there? I would imagine the chances of us getting beds next to each other are very remote. I am hoping we can ask someone to swap with one of us (providing we actually get on the train). Can anyone help? Thank you.

Welcome to India Mike.

You need to say where you are travelling to/from and also write out the exact listings on your ticket. e.g. W/L 99PQWL/W/L 23

There are different waitlists and this will affect your chances.

Chances of getting an upgrade to 2AC are pretty thin.

EDIT - The General 3AC quota for this trip is only 8 so it looks a tough call.

I booked via cleartrip so got the WL info from India rail website when I do a pnr check and it is set out the way I posted. So no chance of getting the tickets then?

It's a bit like crystal ball gazing but I think that they are most unlikely to confirm. PQWL is less likely to confirm than GNWL. There are 8 confirmed passengers plus 9 waitlisters ahead of you in the queue. You need 11 of them to cancel.

I don't really understand what pqwl means? Think I will book the flights. Such a shame, we were both looking forward to the train journey. Thanks for your help.

PQWL stands for Pooled Quota Wait List. That probably doesn't help much but there is an article here that might.

That's helpful, thanks. The waitlist for the same train is current WL12. Is it worth booking tickets for that? Will there be more chance of getting the tickets?

For 2a that is.
