London to Amsterdam Eurostar direct timings

I am trying to book London to Amsterdam direct train for April. I was able to see a train which leaves from London at 7:16am last week. However, I am not able to find it now. It shows only a 5.16pm train. Is there going to be change is schedule? Or is the 7:16am train discontinued or sold out?

It would help if you say which day in April.

For a few random dates in April I see a 17.16 direct train and no 19.16 direct train.

It shows up in the journey planner but doesn't seem bookable yet.

Adter the 30th of March I can't seem to book the 7.16 train. And only the 17.16 train.

It could be that booking hasn't opened up yet. The train selling out at this stage is an impossibility. Trina don't sell out months in advance.

The full schedules are not yet finalized (for trains, 5 months is a lot, Eurostar just started their winter sale). Eurostar is planning on starting a third train on weekdays from March 2019 (not yet visible in the planner). If they also add more weekend trains, or even cut them (as now seems the case) is currently unknown.

You're just a bit early, Eurostar still seems to tweak and change the schedules for April. Check back in December or contact Eurostar directly.

Eurostar needs to get their act together. You used to be able to book 180 days in advance. Even today I can book the 17.16 train for the 9th of April.

These sort of things won't hit Eurostar for their regular travelers. But it will cost them tourists who like to get everything settled as early as possible.

@Lionheart2304

Train schedules are hard to work out. Eurostar has to cope with 4 different countries, 4 governments, a lot of stations and a lot of different rail road companies. The governments don't see the need to centralize the railroad companies and Eurostar is the victim of that.

I understand that it's annoying for tourists, but you can't really blame Eurostar.

At least be transparent about it then. And release everything 180 days, 150, 120 or 90 in advance.

But don't go messing about with on date x we release train y but not train z, and on date a we release train c but not train b.

Which is basically what they're doing now. This is confusing for everyone.

Times can normally change up to 14 days before departure (actually, this also holds for all EU airlines) and schedules are released between 60 and 180 days before a date, depending on loads of factors.

Most transport companies do not have clear release dates of schedules/tickets.

Actually most do.

DB: 180 days for domestic trains 90 days for international trains.

SNCF: 120 days.

TrenItalia: 120 days

PKP: 30 days.

Etc etc.
