If I'm travelling alone, and book a sleeping car room, will I be the only person in that room for the duration or could someone else travelling alone be assigned to other seat/bed? To put it another way, am I booking the entire room or just the bed?
If I am booking the entire room, what are the policies on who is allowed to be in there with me? If someone in a coach seat said, "It's impossible to sleep in this cattle car. I'll give you X dollars to let me sleep in your other bed," am I asking for trouble by accepting?
For two people going from (for example) CHI to LAX in a roomette it's $420/person as opposed to $664 when booked solo. Are there any websites for people looking to travel together specifically to help defray costs? Because I'd be more than happy to buy earplugs to deal with somebody snoring for a couple of nights if it meant I could save almost $250.
Thanks in advance for any insight you folks can provide.
