When I flew to New York, I took the train from Munich to Zurich to fly from there to New York and was very happy with the train journey. Everything was clean, the seats were comfortable, there were sockets for charging and wifi! It was also very quiet the whole journey, so I was able to get some sleep. I had reserved a seat by the window beforehand, so I also had a good view!
