Which is better - Jet Konnect or Kingfisher Red?

I have to make a choice between two flights - Jet Konnect
9W-2391 and Kingfisher Red IT-2406 to fly from Chennai to Bangalore. Please give your suggestions on the above mentioned flights and experiences if any. Also, I would like to know the flight model of 9W-2391. Is it 737 or the ATR one? TIA

welcome to ft nirunbright....i have always felt jet konnect is a better service than kingfisher red....

there is no 9w 2391 but there is a 9w 2351....in either case, all of the jet konnect flights between maa-blr have the option for jet konnect select (business class) so they cannot be atrs....

Its like a 1 hour flight, so you might as well take the cheaper one,

FWIW, for a short flight like MAA-BLR or BOM-GOI, I would go for the one which has the cheapeat fare.. my experience with KF red is better since they give u something to eat/drink in even short duration flights which is good.. BUT KF has been cancelling many flights at short notice lately, so you should be aware of that too..

True, but do note that most 9W Konnect flights have now been replaced by full service flights.

I second this. In my experience, Kingfisher Red's crews are nicer and more willing to help even on very short flights.
