Amtrak Introduces a Bidding System for Upgrades | Frommer’s

Amtrak is introducing a new system that lets passengers with coach tickets bid on upgrades to first or business class. | Frommer’s

In many ways, high-end train travel in the United States mirrors high-end plane travel.

Amtrak doesn’t have seats that convert into lie-flat beds in first and business class. But those categories do come with a lot of perks that recall expensive air travel, such as food and beverages, special lounges at stations, and more legroom than in coach (amenities vary by route).

On trains, reserved seating is another enviable business-class perk, especially during busy travel times on popular routes.

Like the airlines, Amtrak has its own loyalty program, Amtrak Guest Rewards, through which you can earn points to use toward future trips and cabin upgrades.
