comment Train passport control from London to Paris
@DumbCoder Not since they agreed to herd all Brussels to Lille passengers into only carriage 18 you won't, not unless they loose someone from there. Thankfully, the extra border check in London for Brussels/Lille is now a very rare occurrence (and I speak from experience!)

comment Pricing and booking mixed-class fares, with economy & premium economy combined?
Though personally, any time I need to book something with complicated fare class restrictions (eg some legs in one class, some in others), I find it simplest to phone up a travel agent and book with them!

comment Pricing and booking mixed-class fares, with economy & premium economy combined?
When booking on the BA website, I find that if I ask for Premium Economy it normally puts you into regular Economy if PE isn't available (short haul, partner etc). Did you try the various airline's own website, in case one of them offers "PE or lower" rather than "PE or higher" logic?

comment Why is it difficult/how to make it easier for Americans to understand Australian accents?
Almost all Americans have a very noticable accent! Some have a noticable but still easy for most to understand one, some noticable and hard for many non-Americans to follow, but all have an accent...

comment Non-EU citizen applying UK visa, return ticket from France, should I book a return from UK for UK visa appliation?
You'll need to show how you plan to leave the UK, but that doesn't have to be a return ticket.

comment Train passport control from London to Paris
There are no UKBA staff at St Pancras on the departures side, only French immigration staff checking passports. There are UKBA staff at St Pancras, but they're all on the arrivals side, where they sometimes pop out for spot checks

comment What is the best way to get from Antwerp to Calp in Spain by train?
With current timetables, yes. As the French and Spanish high speed rail networks continue to grow, you may be able to get it in one day. As it stands, if you leave Antwerp at 05:36 you can make it to Alicante by 22:47, if everything goes well, but that'll be too late to get to Calp that night

IC, or ICE, or ICE-sprinter? (They're different!)

comment Travelling by train in Germany, what's the best option to buy the ticket?
What kind of train are you planning to get? There could be a big difference between a long distance high-speed train, and the local s-bahn

comment Post paid cancelable hotel in Paris?
If you're going to hold the reservation, then cancel later, why do you care what they'd charge at checkin when you won't be ever checking in?

comment rollerboard that just exceeds 28 inch in Amtrak train
Is it that you personally can't check luggage on the other trains, or that no checked luggage service is offered on the other trains so it's hand luggage only or nothing?
