German MP sparks row after proposing an end to first-class rail travel  

A leading leftwing politician has sparked a row in Germany by proposing the rail operator Deutsche Bahn scraps first-class carriages to reduce overcrowding and improve energy efficiency.

Bernd Riexinger, the co-leader of Die Linke party, said having two classes of travel in regional trains in particular made no sense when the emphasis should be on energy efficiency and making rail travel more accessible.

“People are standing in the corridors, while in the first class there’s loads of free space,” he told the news network RND. “We are affording ourselves the luxury of dragging along almost empty first-class carriages in overcrowded express trains. All carriages should be open to everyone so that in one stroke we’d have more capacity – and almost without having to pay extra for it.” Read more HERE.
