Pros
I sat with my group in quad seating, so we were able to have great interaction.
Cons
The train left about 30 minutes late. The quad seating legroom was limited compared with normal forward facing seats, but I prefer the quad seating regardless of the legroom issue. Also, I don't use onboard WiFi, so I'm not sure if it was working.
