Reserved Business Class seating is the minimum class of service on Acela Express and is offered as an upgrade on many of our short / medium-distance trains. If you've never upgraded to Business Class on Amtrak, you might be surprised at how affordable it is.
With spacious, comfortable seats, you can fold down your extra-large tray table, plug in to an at-seat power outlet and get to work. Or recline, stretch out your legs and take a much needed break. You'll also be able to enjoy a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage when the train is equipped with a food service car.
Business Class passengers aboard Northeast corridor and Midwest corridor trains have complementary unlimited access to The New York Times and Washington Post digital newspapers during their trip. Access to these papers is provided through the entertainment tab on the AmtrakConnect page.
On the Coast Starlight, you'll also get two bottles of water and a $6.00 coupon to redeem toward the purchase of a meal, snack or beverage in the Dining Car or Lounge. Upon confirmation of space availability, Business Class passengers may request a reservation to enjoy our popular wine tastings in the Parlour Car (tasting fee applies). When it's time to get back to business, stay connected with free Wi-Fi access.
On the Pacific Surfliner, enjoy a reserved seat with extra leg room, complimentary beverages (glass of wine in the afternoon), light snacks and newspapers. You'll also receive complimentary access to the Los Angeles Metropolitan Lounge.
