Hello, Thanks for directing me to the 1st class upgrade page.. i will definitely consider this. Also will check the lift operating months and timings.
Let me try and respond to your questions (for my last query) so that you can check if my understanding is correct !!
On Day 4 and Day 8 - Both these days are selected as "free days" for my Swiss Flexi Saver Pass. So for Matterhorn, I get the 50% discount for pass. For Eggishorn, train travel is free but I do have to pay for mountain lifts / gondolas as per the available discounts (due to swiss pass) or full in case there is no discount. Similarly, for Lake Oeshinen, when I use the mountain cable car, I do have to pay as per the available discounts (due to swiss pass) or full in case there is no discount. For Interlaken - Lucern travel, I do it free since I this is a "free" selected travel day.
Is my above understanding correct !
Now lets talk about Day 7.
Day 7, is not a free travel day selected by me. But I still can avail the 25% discount on JUngfraujoch and 50% discount on bus to Stechelberg due to the swiss pass I am holding.
Suppose I change my travel plan and include Day 7 as a free travel day in my 6 day swiss flexi saver pass. Even now, I ONLY get the 25% discount on Jungfraujoch as this is the max allowed discount for swiss pass holders. BUT NOW for my bus trip to stechelberg, I get the 100% discount as day 7, in this plan, is a free travel day.
Is the above understanding correct too ?
That will give me confidence that the way I have calculated fares is the right approach.
