Hi Forum: First a general thank you to the forum for the excellent information on traveling in Switzerland. My wife and I will be traveling in Switzerland for a week starting September 7. We will be using the 4-day Swiss Flexi Pass. Our two longer travel days will be from Geneva to Lauterbrunnen (arrival day) and Lauterbrunnen to Milan, Italy (departure day). We will also take a day trip on the panoramic Goldenpass train from Interlaken to Montreaux. Given the time of the year, is it worth it to purchase the 1st class Swiss Flexi Pass? My concern is when traveling with luggage on the arrival and departure days, having things go "smoothly". By the way, I also plan on making reservations for the arrival and departure days even for the Swiss portion of the trips. Your thoughts on whether 1st class vs. 2nd class will be very helpful; and if you recommend 1st class, is making reservations for the Swiss portions of the arrival and departure day trains overkill?
Thanks in advance,
