Tickets to ride in first-class seats that don't exist.
It said the Southeastern rail company was charging 30% more for a single first-class ticket on the high-speed route from London to Dover Priory, which had no first-class seating.
The magazine also said that the First Capital Connect (FCC) train company charges 63% more for single first-class fares between Luton Airport Parkway station and Wimbledon in south-west London. Which? said this line had no first-class service but had declassified first-class carriages, where holders of standard tickets can sit.
Which? editor Martyn Hocking said: "Rail companies need to stop taking passengers for a ride and only sell first-class tickets if they can offer a firstclass service." In a separate article, Which? found rail passengers could save money by buying two tickets instead of one for a single, same-day jour ney.
