Current Summer schedule is

07:30 6 car
12:30 6 car
15:30 3 car (6 on a Friday)
18:30 6 car + first

The 13:15 Westport Dublin is 6 cars so there are more seats, no complaints concerning this service this year. The problem is the 12:30 is not always a 6 car

Westport Mk3 set was 348 + 32 + 1

Current
6 coach 2*3 cars is 384 + 0 + 4
6 coach with first 342 + 36 + 3
6 coach high capacity 408 + 0 + 2

So there are more seats and more trains. The problems are down to reservations not working and the occasional short formed train. Its probably not helped by the 12:30 ex Dublin and 13:15 ex Westport being offered 10 euro fares on all seats online. Better yield management would move demand to the 15:30 service
