To answer to quilly's question: In Europe we are far advanced in train travel. Switzerland has a very highly efficient train network and system travelling at ease from one place to an other one. And thanks to highspeed trains like the TGV (also from the Alsthom group) I am travelling from my town on the shores of lake Geneva to the wonderful capital city of France, Paris, in 3 hours 20 minutes, from railway station to railway station in the centres of the cities. By airplane it would take ne 1 hour. From airport to airport. Going to airport, checking in, waiting, flying, getting down, going to town would take much more than 3 hours 20 minutes.
