I've been all over Europe in 49 seat king longs, there not a bad bus when you get used to them.
Ok they are cheap, but a passenger would be more impressed with a new king long, than a 10yr old Volvo.
Ledger love them, they wanted a silver service king long.
But like you say, driver wise not the best.
The 32/35 seaters were hopeless, move about on the road too much.
