We booked a tour round the golden triangle in july, part of which was overnight train travel between points in 1st class a/c. I knew this was not bookable until. 120 days before travel, which is mid feb 2013. Since i'd not heard anything about the tickets, i tried to contact the operator last week and after 2 reminders have just received an email to say the ticket is booked but no 1 a/c is available. Do the 1 a/c get booked fast and is there a wait list? Does this commonly happen with tour operators or have we just been very unlucky? I'm inclined to cancel tne booking with them as now have little faith they've arranged anything else either !
