I have booked some 1A tickets for Delhi-Amritsar Shatabdi train for two groups.

Can someone explain which seats we will be having?
Are we going to be near each other?
For the second group how can they all be in one berth if it is only meant to take 4?

Seat/Berth Coach Status
1 0041 E2 CONFIRM
2 0042 E2 CONFIRM
3 0043 E2 CONFIRM
4 0044 E2 CONFIRM

1 0049 E2 CONFIRM
2 0050 E2 CONFIRM
3 0051 E2 CONFIRM
4 0052 E2 CONFIRM
5 0053 E2 CONFIRM

Appreciate your advice.

No idea about the seat layout, but I think it's 4 across (from window to window), so you've likely got 2 full rows.

E2 - we don't see that a lot, 2 x executive chair class carriages, maybe the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi as well.

Thanks for reply Stephen. I was told I had sleeper seats not the executive chairs.

1A in Shatabdi trains = Executive Chair Class.

There's only ECC and air con chair class on Shatabdis.

The seat layout in executive chair car is 2 on each side of the aisle.

Thanks you all for your helpful comments.

Another question is on the Shatabdi where are you meant to store your luggage on 1A? There will be 9 of us.

Steven:

My wife and I have booked Shatabdi Exp from Delhi to Agra, seats #45 /ws and 46 /sm. I was confused about the "sm". Are we together in two seats, one next to window, the other next to aisle? Just curious. I guess I cd wait until we get on the train next month!

Belinda,

These are comfortable 2 by 2 seats.....lots of leg room and lots of recline.....

There will be space above as well as at end of coach...better to use space above - unless you have very large and heavy luggage.

Twoshoes - you are in two consecutive seats......if u r in ECC, then it will be window and aisle...

if you are in ac chair car, the configuration is 3 by 2...so it can be window and middle as well........
