Anyone know if/when Eurostar plan on adding more services to the schedule?

Looking at doing two trips in October and November and still only offering two departures a day to Paris (at terrible times if travelling from oop north).

Surely given travel to France is without restriction for the majority of travellers, they can afford to add a couple of extra services now. Four a day through August and September.

Retweet from Seat 61 that the Paris service goes up to 5/day from 6 Sept.
Can anyone link it?

Nothing on Brussels yet, but I would hope for the 1504 - looking at the Q paths in RTT, the 1258 is missing.

Sorry, I was looking at Paris.

Looks like September is up to five a day but nothing beyond then. Guess they are biding their time.

They just added some more trains to the London-Brussels line: three returns a day from 6 September!
Checked for them last night (Wed-Thu), and they weren't available yet, but Thursday afternoon, I was finally able to change my mid-September London-Brussels ticket from a morning to an evening train!

Thanks - 0855, 1804 but not the 1504 :( 0852, 1600, 1822 back.

how complex would transit regulations be say on an Amsterdam to London trip?
With each country doing their own thing, many might be tempted to fly.

Depends mostly on what the UK does I suppose. Within the EU the color coding on which travel-advices are given is somewhat more harmonised nowadays.
Transit usually is allowed without any special requirements.

And the current 1tpd runs to Amsterdam (there is no increase in September).

I thought they had said no some time back (and to Marseille next year).

I think they said non-core services (plus Ebbsfleet/Ashford stops) "deferred until 2022".

Though I think it would be too brave to launch them in the current climate, at least for the Ski services. Would be very risky, I think, and the focus is probably on rebuilding the core Three Capitals services.

I recall they did briefly release tickets for summer 2021 Marseille services, before abruptly changing their mind and refunding the tickets sold.

As happy as I am that a new timetable has arrived, I'm not overly impressed by the 19:13 being the last train back from Paris. I wasn't expecting the 21:13 to be reinstated but having the 20:13 would've been nice.

The last London-Brussels is an hour earlier than I'm used to too, but at least I only lose an hour in London now, as opposed to a whole day before the change…
