Croissants, yoghurts, full English breakfasts, gooseberry compotes with crème fraiche, Champagne, beef cheek in red wine, cod roulade… the menu for first-class Eurostar passengers - overseen by superchef Raymond Blanc - is amazing.<br>
Well, normally amazing.<br>
Right now in first class - or 'business premier' in the Eurostar-vernacular - it amounts to cookies (very nice ones) and bottles of water, as I recently found out on a return trip from London - /news/london/index.html to Paris. <br>

Masks are mandatory<br>

Like the rest of the travel industry, Eurostar has had to adapt its operation to make it Covid-secure and a reduction in onboard services - http://search.un.org/search?ie=utf8&site=un_org&output=xml_no_dtd&client... is one of many measures introduced as a result.<br>

They're mandatory onboard.<br>
At first glance, when I arrived at St Pancras International - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Pancras%20International station for the 12.24 to Paris, all seemed perfectly normal.<br>

Jostling levels? Zero<br>

Eurostar is currently running eight Paris services a day, four to Brussels and one to Amsterdam<br>
Then I noticed that some of the outlets in the normally bustling shopping arcade section were shut - along with the dedicated business premier security lane.<br>
After one of my group kindly bought me a coffee from the thankfully open Paul bakery, we decided to begin the journey through security and border control.<br>
Thing is, my coffee was gigantic, the clock was ticking and it was too hot to gulp down, so I decided to check-in with it.<br>
A potential hiccup - but Eurostar had me covered, as I'll explain.<br>
To ensure social distancing, staff were filtering passengers through in controlled numbers.<br>
Seats in business premier come with a recline function, a reading light and a socket for UK and continental plugs<br>
Breakfast, business premier-style, used to start with a roll, a croissant and a yoghurt<br>
