Smile Dear Trenitalia - I surrender. You win

Dear Trenitalia,

I wanted to congratulate you on your triumphant accomplishment in the field of Not Allowing Me To Purchase Tickets on Your Website. Despite my repeated attempts using different browsers, both English and Italian versions of both the old and new booking engines, selecting different and more expensive fares when I was told repeatedly "la tariffa non disponibile," you persevered against all of my efforts. I have come to the ultimate and inescapable conclusion that you do Not Want Me To Purchase Tickets on Your Website.

Indeed, I could have also easily recognized you in the category of Not Allowing Me To Purchase Tickets on Your Website When the Lowest "Mini" Fares are Actually Selectable, but you fell short when failing to let me price out the same itinerary in "Base" or "Flessibile."

Your trophy, which your noble endeavors have at last delivered to you, is one fewer customer to put up with, and perhaps the joy of knowing that the Euro I was going to spend on the tickets you did Not Allow Me To Purchase on Your Website will instead be going to Eni SpA and Autostrade per l'Italia SpA.

Please be assured that I am not in the least disappointed by your hard work in Not Allowing Me To Purchase Tickets on Your Website and will have no ill will against you while I am boxed in by trucks on the A1 in two weeks.

Finest regards,



So, when does the NTV railway begin operations again?
