Nona -- do you still travel by coach in England? What exactly is a coach? It sounds to me like something Cinderella rode in!

In the U.S., to "travel coach" or "pay coach fare" means to purchase the less expensive seats on an airplane. (usually now it would be called "economy") -- as opposed to "first class".
A coach is just a long-distance bus or a special (normally much nicer) bus that is chartered for tourist trips/school trips/group transport.

It's a nice idea if we call all travel around in Cinderella type coaches Emotion: big smile

It's the same thing as the Greyhounds in the US - but I think that is just a company name. What are the actual vehicles called there?
I would just call it a bus. Actually, I would proably call it "a bus -- not just a city bus, but a big one, like a charter bus or a Greyhound." I just googled Greyhound, and they are described as "America's largest inter-city bus company," so I guess they would also call it a bus.

Yeah, but that whole midnight thing could be a problem...

(Totally unrelated comment: In the Navy, there was a an informal phrase called "Cinderalla liberty." It means you could leave the base and go out and about, but you had to be back by midnight. I always loved that expression!)
Ok, coaches are a bit different to buses, to us. They have different types of seating and so on, are more comfortable. A bus is something only used for a short journey.

As we all know - context is everything.
My immediate thought was that it could also refer to the food (fare) served to people who travel 'coach' class with an airline.
