Thank you for your email. Let's start with the 2 passengers. The difference between 1st and 2nd class typically is the size of the seat and the number of seats in the car. 1st class seats are larger and more comfortable with more leg room. If you are standing in the aisle in 1st (business) class there will be one seat on one side and 2 seats on the other side. In 2nd (standard) class, there are 2 seats on either side of the aisle. The trains for 08 May can be booked at your convenience of course, and we will be happy to assist you with that.
We will also be delighted to assist you with the group trip in September, but the fares and schedules will not be available until we we are within 120 days of the final travel date.
