  • Very comfortable!
    Karen
  • Always a pleasure, I couldn’t get a seat in premier class so I went business. Still very pleasant and it’s good to see that the service is so popular. My only suggestion is put on more services at peak times. It’s hard to plan ahead in business and sometimes we really need to book last minute. This is not possible most days now as Sabsan is full.
