It was a nice quiet ride but my feet were so cold for 4 hours. I had boots on too.

I enjoyed how helpful the people at union station and the loading platform lady were. As well as the cart gentleman and when he helped us off load. Even though it was policy I didn’t enjoy having told to move my luggage out of the aisle when I was trying to organize my seat and stuff I had at my feet. It was only for a second! But I guess, safety first. Very professional crew.

Business class on VIA takes the stress out of traveling. It comes at a premium, but well worth it !!!
