Difference between regular ticket and first class

What are the advantages of a first-class ticket?


Hi there,

The main difference is that a lot less people travel in 1st Class (or Green Class) making it much more relaxed and quiet to travel.

You also get more space and other small extras, depending on travel traveled on.
