Remember when Second Class travel meant sacrificing comfort to save money?
Well, we left those days in the dust at 200 mph. With reclining seats and adjustable head and footrests. With individual reading lights and even more legroom (92 cm., previously 85 cm.). All part of the cheery purple and red Christian Lacroix designed interiors of the new Second Class compartments. And the amenities continue. You’ll find “Le Bureau” in car 7 of every TGV. This is a dedicated communications area with power outlets for your utmost convenience.
You can also choose the most appropriate seating arrangement for you or your group: from duo side by side seating, to four seats facing each other with a fold-down table between them called a Club 4. We also offer Espace Famille: 4 fold-away seats facing each other with a fold-down table. The TGV even has baby changing facilities and special family cars with play tables. Second Class? It’s something you’ll only notice on your ticket.
Please note: this seating chart is a representation of an Economy car. Your actual train may have slight variations in the number of seats, restrooms, or table placements.
