On 29 May, I travelled from Paris to Madrid. It was a very long journey that took about 10 hours. I had to change trains once during the journey from TGV 9708 to AVL 6301. The staff were very helpful and I was able to buy hot meals, snacks and drinks. There was wifi as well as power sockets and tables to work at. The seats were still comfortable after 10 hours. Unfortunately, it was a bit chilly because of the air conditioning.
