Palmetto business class: pretty empty

The business class car of the Amtrak Palmetto service from SAV to NYC is situated in the front of the train, just ahead of the cafe car. It's set up in a 2-2 seating formation. It's pretty empty today (but of course the woman with the annoying cough-slash-chronic-throat-clearing-humming habit has parked herself directly behind me), and the crew has earmarked the first half of the car for couples and people traveling together who get on at later stops, which is a nice touch.
