“It would have been even better if you had also talked about how kind and competent our team was when attending you in your first-class seat,” the company finished off its reply in a second publication, which forced Thunberg to specify exactly what the conditions in which she had traveled in Europe. “Our train from Basel was out of circulation, so we sat on the ground in two different trains. After Göttingen, I got a seat. It was not a problem for me and, of course, and I never said it was. Overcrowded trains are a great sign because it means that the demand for train travel is high!”, the young woman pointed out in her tweet following the complaint of the operator Deutsche Bahn, who before engaging with the member of the ‘Fridays for Future’ movement had wanted a good trip to Greta Thunberg and to continue “working hard from more trains.”
