>> If i consider travelling by 2nd class i have two aisle seats facing eachother , which is not that bad for a couple.But ny concern is are those seats really that comfortable for an 8 hour journey? If its not then is the scenery really worth seating uncomfortably for 8 hours?
The Glacier Express is a special experience, so if it were me, I would book the second class Glacier Express seats, rather than travel first class on normal trains. You can read a description of first class v. second class travel (and see photos of 1st and 2nd class Glacier Express seats) on the following website:
I have also attached some photos of the first-class carriage of the normal train of the Matterhorn-Gotthard Bahn that travels along the Glacier Express route between Zermatt and Disentis/Mustér. I don't seem to have any photos of the interior or exterior of the first-class carriages of the Rhätische Bahn trains that travel the route between Disentis/Mustér and St Moritz.
If you take normal trains, you will need to bring your own food, as there is no catering service. There is on-board catering on the Glacier Express, but you can also bring your own food if you prefer.
