You know, for the ordinary people in China, the price is little high. We're all expecting the price go down.

fake,
the French TGV hit 574 only on a test run (NO PASSENGER), it was never (at least NOT YET) commercialized and in everyday operation, but this China one is going to be in everyday operation very soon (probably less than 8 weeks) carrying thousands of passengers

I can't understand those who expected that ALL Chinese citizens should be able to afford the first class ticket of this train. I think those naive people are communists.
