    Hello,

    On our site, Economy just refers to 2nd class and Comfort refers to 1st class. On trains in Europe, 1st class offers more comfortable and larger seats, more leg room, and is often less crowded with fewer seats per train car. As a result, the 1st class train cars also may tend to be quieter than the 2nd class train cars.

    Class of service on the Eurostar between Paris and London is slightly different than other trains throughout Europe.

    This train will offer 'Premier' as a third option. On the Eurostar, Premier refers to 'Business Premier', which is a class of service exclusive to the Eurostar. Business Premier train cars on the Eurostar will have fewer seats than even 1st class and will most certainly be quieter. With the purchase of Business Premier tickets, there would be a separate dedicated ticket desk and check-in area. Business Premier tickets also allow you access to the Eursostar Executive Lounges at the stations.

    On the Eurostar between Paris and London, 1st class (Comfort) is known as 'Standard Premier Class' and will also include a meal served to your seat, in addition to the usual differences between 1st and 2nd class. On the Eurostar, 2nd class (Economy) is known as 'Standard Class'.
