Hi Ladera,

Differences of 1st and 2nd classes for most trains are noted here: https://www.myswissalp 2nd1stclass

It is similar for the Glacier Express. Fewer seats and people = so a bit more spacious and quiet. I found the lunch to be quite good. I believe it is the same food in both classes, but you can have the food sent to your seat/table in 1st class.
