2011

Between 2011 and 2014, 17 coaches were sold by ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) to RJ (RegioJet). The coaches were painted in RJ (RegioJet) colors and suffered interior modifications but remained registered in Austria and kept the initial UIC registration numbers from ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways).

Once repainted in RJ (RegioJet) colours and despite the fact these coaches are both 1st class and 2nd class coaches, there is no 1st class mentioned on the exterior of the coaches, only the number "2" appears. Despite the fact all RJ (RegioJet) coaches are marked as 2nd class on the exterior, inside there is a difference in comfort based on the type - and the price - of the ticket.

Among the types of tickets proposed:
- Business: leather seats in 4-seater compartments (the ÖBB Business Class compartments) , choice of drinks, wifi and Czech and Slovak newspapers;
- Relax: first class 6-seater compartment , choice of drinks, wifi and Czech and Slovak newspapers;
- Standard: seating in classic 6-seater compartments , no WiFi, or 2 + 2 seats in Bmpz 20-90 cars with free Wi-Fi and touchscreen entertainment;
- Low-cost: seats in 2 + 2 in the greatest simplicity, without any service.
