Public transit isn't just for people with low incomes. It is also a way to cut down on pollution from burning fossil fuels. So if a person can afford to pay for a better seat, you should encourage that person to do so. After all we all breath the same air.
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

For people willing to pay extra, this extra convenience is OK.

This it is one of the many examples why China will never be a developed country unless its authorities show more respect and humanity to its citizens.
This kind of so called "projects" just show the big gap between the poor and rich. A civic problem with the approval of the authorities.
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

What a rediclous idea for a short trip

A trip from Hongqiao Train Station on Line 2 to Pudong Airport takes 98 minutes Sir!
I like the option to use the Subway for planned arrival on time and would be happy to pay more for a comfortable seat. And I would create some free space for other travellers in the standard class coaches with that as well.
Look at how many passengers use the MAGLEV, it’s pure comfort and efficiency.
I could also drive with my 4.4 litre X5 contributing to the already fktup air quality and get stuck in traffic.

In general I guess it is a good and sustainable idea to convince Car drivers to reconsider and rather take the Sub. instead.
Twentyfive percent out of nothing is still nothing!

I rode on the Airport Express in the first class car in Hong Kong on my last trip.  There was a swipe station on the platform and in the adjoining regular class car.  A porter came around and swiped your card on a hand held device. If it showed you had not paid first class you were asked to leave the first class car and it was your choice to swipe the first class reader or stay out.

The only problem I see with this is if the other cars are over crowded and people have to wait on the platform for trains they can board.  If they are going to have first class cars they should ensure that there are frequent enough trains that overcrowding is not a problem.  One possibility would to be offer first class cars only out side of peak travel periods.  The people that can afford to pay the extra cost  probably have more flexible schedules
