If both network are good then Jio 399 plan is better as you get to enjoy services from various Jio apps apart from truly unlimited calls and SMS.

Airtel’s 399 plan validity is just 70 days whereas Jio’s 399 plan provides 84 days validity. So the clear choice is Jio 399 plan.

Also with Airtel, you have to double check whether the plan is applicable to you or not and also whether the validity or benefits have changed overnight.
