Just to add, really looking for the best combination of practicality, convenience and value. Basically, the trip is already going to cost more than I planned because of the numbers, since, assuming its happening, there are only two of us sharing costs for the majority of the trip. So this is why I am looking primarily at the air India flight options (last two trips I flew with BA and Virgin). I know from experience that I rarely sleep well on the night before my trip, so will no doubt be awake in any case, which is why I am more inclined to get the ungodly o'clock coach than travel down the evening before and lay out on a premier inn or leave later and get a train (doing so and I would hit rush hour traffic in London, ugh!).
Also, with the coach, it is longer, but I can nap and not have to worry about changing en route.

If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.
