Eurolines lacks any acceptable form of entertainment and transparancy

Advantages: it passes many cities in Europe and you can see what they look like
I've travelled many times with Eurolines from origin to terminus, like from Rotterdam to Oslo, Stockholm, Bucharest, Kosice, Przemysl(PL). We are talking about journeys with a duration over 24 hrs or 48 if you count the inbound journey. Just going from Brussels to Paris is peanuts, try one of the aforementioned routes and then we'll talk.
Yeah it's all pretty bad..I could write an entire essay on this but I will just narrow it down to this: lack of transparency. They will tell you NOTHING!!!
All the stops during the ride? Cities it skips? Locations it stops in? Number of passengers/getting in/off/on the bus? Seat indication? Delay? When there is time for a break..and by this I don't mean announcing it 10 seconds before stopping at a dark parking lot. I could go on..but then I would lose count. They are not even cheap, compared to train fares in western Europe: yes. To low cost carriers: NO!! Since most flight companies are expanding their line destinations, I assume that Eurolines will soon be out of business.
Bus rides simply last too long and with Eurolines there is serious lack of entertainment. No wifi, no electrical outlets, no music+headphone line equipment, magazines and NO good movies. Especially when you are on the lines to Poland there is only Polish dubbed movies. I can honestly say that Eurolines is for the underclass and cheap Polish labour workers.
Summary: take a flight, we are living in the 2012's!!!
