The passenger would, as with the flight, board the evening before. Dinner would be served in a spacious and comfortable (contrast with aeroplane) dining carriage. The passenger would then retire to their cabin where they could take a shower, work at a desk, or watch a movie on the TV. The passenger would then go to sleep for the evening. In the morning the passenger would return to the dining carriage for a lovely breakfast. And then, most importantly, the passenger would arrive refreshed, in the heart of the city, ready for his/her meeting.
- Cost (no separate accomodation)
- Time (no need to travel from the airport to the hotel on arrival or again the same morning)
- Comfort (trains can afford to be more spacious and therefore more comfortable than aeroplanes)
- Although the train will be much more comfortable than the aeroplane for the travel, it is likely to be less comfortable than a hotel
- It may not be possible to have a gym in the train (and certainly not possible to have a swimming pool)
