Channel Tunnel reopens, but where are the passengers?

From Times OnlineSeptember 13, 2008

Restricted services to France and Belgium have begun, but many travellers appear to have made alternative arrangements.
The Channel Tunnel reopened to passenger trains this morning with the first Eurostar train leaving St Pancras station just before 7am.
Eurostar staff said a reduced timetable was running, but because many passengers due to travel today had not shown up they were hopeful most who did would get a train.
One group of holidaymakers heading for Lake Garda in Italy were told to check in early, only to discover they would be travelling around 45 minutes after their original scheduled time.
