Since apparently more people are eating in their rooms than in the Diner, apparently Diner seating problems is currently a non-issue. It is hard to tell whether they are staying away from the Diner on their own or they are being encouraged to eat in their rooms explicitly.I'm wondering how the "Super Star" is doing feeding 5 sleeper cars. Figuring a max of 150 passengers divided by 3 dinner seatings you are just about at capacity if the Viewliner had the as-designed 48 seats. But with the reduction to 42 seats from the loss of seating due to the poorly executed ADA accommodation and the crew's usual habit of eliminating two tables for set-ups and personal items, it must be kind of hectic.
How about food storage and availably? I bet they are forcing many passengers to eat in their rooms if they want to or not.
In the past several months whenever I traveled on the Silvers, I never saw the Diner being a popular place. Most ate in their rooms.
