While middle passengers occupy staterooms normally similar to those occupied by high passengers, they do not receive the service or entertainment accorded the higher paying passengers. In addition, the quality of the cuisine is rather low. Baggage totalling 100 kilograms is allowed.
History & Background (Dossier)
A middle passenger may be 'bumped' and the stateroom taken by a late arriving high passenger; the middle passenger's ticket is returned, but no other compensation is made. The middle could then buy a high passage and 'bump' another middle passage, if the extra cost seemed worth it. Middle passage costs Cr8,000.
