The most exciting thing within the rail industry
The best advice to someone starting out in the rail industry
I would say bring in airline experience. If you start in the industry, either come from the hotel industry where you have worked in a yield management environment or come from the airline industry where you have worked either in distribution or IT or the yield management environment because these are the items which are contributing to today's high-speed rail complexity. We have made it very… very complex because of the yield management principles, but here we are, we need yield management to have a healthy profit and loss and without that it will not be profitable, so if you even think of entering the international rail industry then first build up some experience, in either the hotel industry in the yield management areas or in the airline world.
