I have a trip coming up in one week on Coast Starlight from OKJ to LAX. I had booked a roomette since I did not want to sit in coach for 12 hours. Today I got this email from Amtrak-
We wanted to let you know that the Sleeper Car has been removed from train #11, the Coast Starlight, from Oakland - Jack London Square on Sunday, June 17th. We've changed your reservation to standard Coach seating.
Does anyone know what is happening? Coast Starlight usually runs with at least 3 sleeper cars, so did they remove all of them? Did they remove one and I got the short end of the stick?
I am trying to find out from Amtrak what's happening but I have been on hold on 1-800-USA-RAIL since eternity. Does anyone on this forum know better what are my options? Will Amtrak offer compensation beyond the difference in sleeper and coach fare? They screwed me over just one week before travel date so now I have to spend a fortune to book a last minute flight or rental car
