Why Fly Off the Handle or Drive Yourself Crazy? Train Yourself to Relax!

An announcement that Amtrak to trim one-way Acela fares by 25% is causing FlyerTalk members to re-think their airline ties regarding flying to certain destinations between March 3 and June 26, 2009, when this sale promotion is in effect, as the train fares could be potentially less expensive than airfares between similar origins and destinations.

Train Yourself to Relax

FlyerTalk member ALW wants to compare Amtrak service between New York and Washington, D.C. in the NYP-WAS: Acela vs. Regional, FC vs BC vs Coach thread.

Are the FlyerTalk members who posted advice and information in that thread on the right track? Should ALW switch from regional service to Acela service on Amtrak? What is the signal that prompted the final decision?

Please do not worry about crossing other FlyerTalk members if you have any advice to post to that thread, nor should you be fit to be tied if someone disputes your advice.

Other FlyerTalk members are using their engine-uity to break the tie of how to successfully upgrade on a coach ticket for TrainTalk – er…I mean FlyerTalk – member Train McGhee from Chicago to Seattle who hopefully will not get steamed by the answers.
