Two weeks ago I found myself travelling First Class on the ICE high-speed train to Cologne. First isn’t so different from 2nd Class, but as you would expect the seats are placed further apart to create more legroom. That sounds great, but actually it makes things less comfortable. Because your table is attached to the seat to the seat in front of you, which makes it rather difficult to work on your laptop during the trip.
PS: And what about the risk of dropping your computer on the ground when working on your knees…?
