Why is Economy class also called coach class? --DocBrown 03:36, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
Probably because the seating conditions are comparable to a coach - ie cramped but cheap. 184.108.40.206 09:10, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
That's what americans call it. Have to have a different word for everything, don't they!
Personally I, as well as many business travelers, prefer the term "peasant class":-P. Cquan(after the beep...) 01:18, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
"Cattle class" is another (possibly regional, definitely slang) nickname for economy class. Might or might not be worth including. And check the link for Via Rail, it is a Canadian company, not American. There isn't any routes in the US either. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:46, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
