This journey’s itinerary


I wait a few minutes after the boarding announcement made in the lounge before leaving for the train. This avoids unnecessary clumping.


Cabin and reception

As usual, the reception is done on the platform, andthe staff is charming. They invite passengers to keep the social distancing by better dispatching them in the train, when possible.


In Standard Premier,no welcome drink.

Service and catering

About ten minutes after the departure, the service begins.


A cold lunch tray is distributed. It was pretty good, but very light.


I will accompany it with water.

Coffee service will be made, I will decline. No refill of cold drinks, however.

Arrival and disembarkation

The arrival will be almost on time in Brussels-Midi. Abrief police check will be performed upon disembarkation, mainly to verify the presence of a QR-code.

Bottom line

An uneventful journey, dotted with customer calls. Not easy to do that at 300 km/h.
