    Will full service dining ever return to the Western trains?

    Amtrak certainly has gained the knack of making you feel that is their mission at hand.

    Will full service dining ever return to the Western trains?

    You are so right that service, especially dining car, has tanked as low as the utter crap being served for food at the ridiculous price we pay for it. We live in northeast Louisiana and wife and I literally loved traveling Amtrak bedrooms and would spend 3-4 weeks at a time using LD trains...

    Are you using the AGR credit card less?

    Except for auto debits my Amtrak card is back in my safe. My Select Plus status extended so also don't need the spend for 4000 TQP's and building travel points. It used to be my everyday card to finance the trips my wife and I enjoy taking but in the current atmosphere of Covid and Amtrak...

    April trip on The Canadian

    I did for wife and I and also paid with Amtrak card so should get 2pts per dollar spent towards Amtrak travel. Definitely coming back to Canada again. Would love to spend some more time in Nova Scotia especially.

    April trip on The Canadian

    I hope so as well because LD trains suit how we travel long distances. Amtrak bedrooms a bit draconian but adequately serve the purpose. Meals on western trains still edible and the communal aspect of the dining car still intact on those trains which is one of the most delightful parts of train...

    April trip on The Canadian

    I received that as well. I called Guest Rewards and specifically asked about cancellation/modification subsequent to May 31 and response was as long as reservation made prior to May 31 cancellations/modification were allowed after that date.

    I guess we'll find out in October. If they're no better than my experience of the City of New Orleans they can keep that.

    Amtrak Mastercard (40,000 bonus points limited time offer open to all)

    What is a mock booking? I couldn't figure out how to make this happen.

    Amtrak Mastercard (40,000 bonus points limited time offer open to all)

    Canceling the card may produce a larger hit because it reduces your total credit limit available so makes your ratio of indebtedness to available credit higher. Crazy to me but it's how it works.

    Booking Amtrak tickets with Amtrak credit card sends me to fraud dept

    I have Amtrak World card for couple years and use multiple times daily. From time to time I have a charge denied (probably average once a month) and I check my messages and verify the charges listed are mine and then run the card again. And the crazy thing is I eat breakfast at the Latin Food 5...
