  •  I don't know of anybody who travels who wouldn't (8+ / 0-)

    As someone who used to be in almost constant trans-city commute, I absolutely would take Amtrak if the schedule allows for it.  Probably faster Boston -> NY with no security checkin, a beverage counter I can go to when I want, much better ability to sleep, etc.  It's actually viable and not brutal for overnight travel from the East coast to Chicago (if I fly overnight, you'd better wheel me away for at least 4 hours sleep before you put me in front of a customer or colleague who expects coherence).

    I don't know of a commuter who would diagree with me.  Acela rocks!  If only I could have somehow taken it on that once-a-month trip I had to do to Europe...

    (oh, the only time I ever had a private jet was ages ago--a rickety Cessna that belonged to a maniac I worked for for a short time that would take us into Needles, CA, from LAX for an energy lab he had there, because we needed to make the round trip multiple times a day sometimes.  Some perk, lemme tellya...)
