Eurostar predict that their passenger numbers will increase by over two million by the year 2010. With the new shorter journey times between Paris and Brussels from London Eurostar expect passengers numbers to exceed ten million by 2010. From November the 16th 2007 the journey to Paris will be 40 minutes shorter which will enable people to get there quicker than some low cost carriers. By the time you travel to the airport and get on the flight and the same at the other end getting off, if there are any delays the train could be quicker.
Some travel agents have reported an increase in bookings for the Eurostar service already.
Eurostar also claim they will be carbon neutral from November 16th.
