For the comfortable 1st class, €59.90 is a bargain price. In contrast to the 2nd class ticket, which is available from €49.90, a seat reservation is already included here.
This costs another €4.50 in the 2nd class and thus reduces the savings for the 1st class to just €5.40. Therefore, it is absolutely advisable not to skimp senselessly on such a long route.
Because especially the legroom and the seat spacing are significantly larger in 1st class.
In order to get these favorable conditions, it is essential to book the desired route directly upon availability, i.e. 6 months in advance. Just a few days later, the price continues to rise.
