Sir: Brian Rix and his friends (14 April) were very unlucky for their trip to Paris on Eurostar for their wives' birthdays. My husband and I had a very different experience for my birthday. We left Waterloo International terminal on time, had a leisurely breakfast, champagne at the right temperature, delightful time in Paris, drinks on our return train, dinner and a two- minute early arrival at Waterloo. There isn't much to be proud of in Britain today, but the Channel Tunnel is something we should take pride in.
