Hello Mongkol, and welcome. With this itinerary you'll get to see lots of Switzerlands highlights! Some tips: the Rhine falls are actually closer to Zurich than to Lucerne, so it would make more sense to visit them on your first day straight from the airport. You could combine this with the city trip in Zurich. This would mean that you spend your first two days in and around zurich, and then head onto Lucerne on the end of day 2 or on day 3. It'll save you quite some traveling. You can check the timetable for traveling times. A trip in Zurich may include a boat trip over the lake, the tram to viewing point Uetliberg or the Swiss National Museum.

As for day 6 and 7: I'm not sure when your flight leaves from Zurich Airport, but if it's not too early you could manage to spend day 6 in Zermatt as well and travel back to Zurich on day 7. Zermatt is beautiful too, so spending another full day there would be nice.
