As many of our passenger prefer AC class (3A, 2A, 1A, CC) over Sleeper class. or Second sitting (2S)..
I.e. those passenger want to travel in SL /2S... but due to some of their requirement doesn't get fulfilled , hence they moved towards AC .. coaches.
Note. ⭐ GARIBRATH. 3A should not be considered. here. ⭐
1. In sleeper u have
to carry ur own bedsheets. Which increases the weight of ur luggage.
2. As in Sleeper coach during summer it really feels hot and in winter. its too much cold...(inspite windows are closed)
3. in SL /2S. waitlist passenger and sometimes GN passenger also board and crwod becomes too much.
Corridor of sleeper are packed with WL pass.
4. long distance journey. is comfortable in AC. w.r.t. SL.
5. Lot of space is there in AC. and seats in 2S are narrow and in SL seats are thin..
NO vote
Bed sheets are been provided in AC Coach..
Cool Atmosphere or Suitable weather..
Limited people in AC. coach (seat to seat). Silence environment.
For long distance journey. AC is Fine..
Wider Berth and More Leg space Available

For me, preferences actually depends on train and route. If its dirty train & very much crowdy with day journey, then AC. Like Gitanjali and Howrah-ADI SF. But if route is scenic then always Sleeper or 2S. And some routes are really good for rail fanning, then there also Sleeper or 2S.

For short journeys/journey in less-crowded train/trains having less stops, SL/2S is good (if weather is not too hot)
Otherwise 3A

To me any class is fine. A point to be noted in 3A many UR pax are boarding now a days. In many routes UR gets into 2A as well and block the Water Closet(Toilet) Vestibule area. I travel in ACs mostly 1A/2A/3A/CC. and for shorter routes I travel by 2S/SL/GEN.I like to experiment as well. I choose various route for a particular class of travel. Like in SC BZA ICE I booked in 2S just to travel by LHB 2S .I have travelled by all the classes available except EC.
