On board 371 in business class today. I’ll be returning in BC tomorrow night (I hope).
Made my reservation on the Pere Marquette for Sept. 13-15 and Business Class was not available for those dates.
Not surprised at all.
Nope. I wasn't on 370(14). I missed the connection back and got bused back home.
How do the singles rank compared to the supers? Are the seats/leg room comparable?
In my opinion, yes.
Superliners were often seen on The International during winter for same reason as above. That didn't stop them from occasionally showing up in other seasons.
Redacted, answered my own question
Business Class on the Pere Marquette is now bookable for the foreseeable future. I did random test bookings all the way through July, 2020 and BC was available.
YES - and I see it changes to the Superliner as you could book coach in both Upper and Lower levels. Not sure the exact change date but it's sometime mid September.
September 5, from what I see.
I've upgraded the Pere Marquette portion of my trip to Red Wing, MN in mid-October from coach to BC now that it's available. I’m making another try at seeing our mutual friend, Dave. I haven’t forgotten about our earlier conversation to say hi to him from you.
Now all would be good if Amtrak would reinstate the connection from the Empire Builder to all Michigan Services trains so I wouldn’t have to stay an extra night in Milwaukee or Illinois. I’m staying in Glenview on my way back from Red Wing and taking the Hiawatha to Chicago the next day. A little inconvenience but I do have friends in that area and am having lunch with one of them.
