What's it like on a Czech Railjet train?

The Prague-Vienna train service is operated jointly by Czech Railways (CD) & Austrian Railways (ÖBB).  Most departures are operated by blue Czech Railways Railjet trains as shown below, a couple are operated by red Austrian Railways Railjet trains as shown on the Austrian Railjet page - I explain how to check whether your departure will be Czech or Austrian railjet in the travel tips section below.  Railjets are capable of 230 km/h (143 mph), but usually don't exceed 160 km/h (100 mph) in the Czech Republic.  They're push-pull trains, which means they have a powerful electric locomotive at one end and a driving cab at the other, so they can go in either direction.  See virtual tour inside a Czech Railways railjet...

Business class = premium 1st class.  Just 6 seats at one end of the 1st class car.  Same seats but very different layout from business class on Austrian railjet.
