Just bought a ticket online for a speaker coming to an event in Amsterdam. This ticket if you can believe it is actually an London/Amsterdam return. At first glance, you would not notice. I had to call the help desk and confirm. They pointed out that its valid to all stations in the Netherlands (see the red arrow). I made sure she understood how much time this call was wasting her and her collegues time by people who would be confused with the information presented (it was apparently a frequent call) and that the design was a poor choice from the travelers perspective (she tried to tell me that if only i read the small print it would be clear, i countered with, not to someone from the UK who does not read Dutch! She conceded…). So Eurostar, we would appreciate you fix this problem!

The yellow ribbon (which was just wrong) is gone along with the bubbles and "fizzy" white ribbon. The new design is smooth and crisp, and the word "classic" is in a cool, tasteful little sans-serif font. I approve.
