>> We have been told by Rail Europe that it is not possible to purchase tickets for our trip on the Gotthard Panoramic Express earlier than 90 days before departure. We are concerned because we must travel on September13th
As others have confirmed, reservations are not possible more than 90 days before your travel date. But remember that everyone else is in the same boat (so to speak), so they can't reserve either, and won't have any advantage over you.
In any case, in the extremely unlikely scenario that all the seats were booked before you made your reservation, you could still travel exactly the same route, and see exactly the same scenery, on a boat from Luzern to Flüelen, then on regional trains from Flüelen to Lugano (over 20 different departures for the day). I won't go into details about how do that, as it is so unlikely to be necessary, but you can ask for more specific infomation later if need be.
