Good Morning. I wonder if you can help please. I am trying to book a seat on the above. I will have a SwissTravel Pass. RHB site says no seats for about ten days. I assume that means that not running for that time for there to be no seats at all in that time on the first day of reservation. I have then tried both the app and site of SBB. It says it is a Panorama Coach and must be reserved. I tried to reserve a seat through them. I went into extra options but can only seem to book a dog or a bike but not seat. I am neither. This may be as it will not give me option to input that have a pass and insists on giving me a day ticket. Is there a way round all this that you are aware of eg maybe inputting somewhere that we have a Pass. Thank you in anticipation.

Hi Tijoco!

No problem of course :-). There have been more visitors experiencing problems with the RhB website the past few days, so I think there were some technical issues. Alternatively, you can book through the retailers we link to from rninaexpress/tickets.
