  •  Euro tunnel + TGV (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The Eurotunnel stole a huge market share from the London Paris and London Brussels air markets.

    Similarly, the TGV network in France _ powered 85% by nuclear generated electricity - has virtually replaced all air travel between most French regional cities, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Amsterdam and Paris. Why take a plane from say Lyon which is around 300 miles from Paris when the TGV can do city centre to city centre in around 2 hours, with only a five minute check in time.
