But the problem is that , if I’m correct , trains from Bedford to London with “Luton Airport Parkway” stop are operated by two different companies – “East Midlands Trains” and “Thamesink” . But they have THE SAME schedule . I could assume that there are associated trains , like associated plains between different air companies , but I was reading that East Midlands Trains is operating from the platforms 1 to 4 , while Thameslink is using platforms A and B . So it’s difficult to understand , which platform is correct , what will be extremely important on my way back . So , if somebody have some information , I really hope for your help .
: It doesn't matter which company. These trains bring you the same destination and ticket prices are the same regardless.Platform
: You don't need to worry about this too. Once you get to Luton Parkway station there will be up to date info on train departure times and the platform. And you can easily ask the information counter if you need to.Price
: That is true. But discounts are available online. I have explained this in an earlier post
BUT this discount is available on UK websites (eg thetrainline.com) . The problem with this is, if you want to enjoy a really discounted price (I once travelled first class for £10 and my city is three times further than Luton!) you need to buy a ticket for a certain departure time, which means if you miss your train you cannot use your ticket.
The expensive £27 ticket actually gives you flexibility ie say that you miss a 12pm train (hypothetically) you can use it on the next train at 1230pm (but you need to read the terms & conditions before you buy it).
It all depends on what kind of traveller you are - I don't mind being organised and making sure getting at the station at the right time so as to utilise any discounts if I can, but some like to travel unrestricted by time but this is a little bit expensive. Photos
: J-artistes are stricter than their western counterparts when it comes to photos. I've written about this in an earlier post
too. The Korean show you watched was a gig which had multiple artistes performing which meant it was difficult for SCANDAL to say no to photos (they were absolutely strict in Singapore, and in Japan, Japanese fans don't really take photos at gigs). I don't know what London will be like, but the band may still forbid any photos and it all depends if the venue's security will enforce it or not.High touch session
