I’m trying to book a First Class seat reservation on the above train - between Budapest and Rybnik, if that matters - but I can’t seem to do so online. cd.cz only seems to offer second class reservations which is odd.
The train does contain a single first class carriage - see the Vagonweb composition here: https://www.vagonweb.cz/razeni/vlak.php?zeme=START&kategorie=EC&cislo=130&nazev=B%C3%A1thory&rok=2023 - and Mav also offers First Class tickets for sale, but no reservations.
I’m aware the Interrail website does offer First Class reservations, but I’m assuming the service only offers printed versions, at which point it is almost cheaper to just purchase an advance ticket in second class and save a pass day after factoring in the postage charge to the UK.
Alternatively, is it possible to book First Class seat reservations for this train over the counter in Germany / Austria / Romania beforehand? I’m assuming it should be possible to do it in Budapest too, but I’m only spending ~ 24 hrs in the city, so I’m guessing at that stage the reservations will have sold out.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
