A while ago I wrote about the spanish high-speed trains AVE and how they managed to wipe out a big chunk of airline revenues on the BCN-MAD route. There’s been a bit of a hype around the world about rail transport being more environmentally friendly; also it was pictured as less troublesome in comparison with what short-haul European flying is nowadays. Has HSR got the potential to threaten European air transport? Well, apparently it does as rumours that first surfaced aometime around February this year have eventually made the headlines this week. Deutsche Bahn is well underway with their plans to connect Frankfurt with London via high-speed link. KA-BOOM.
