I looked at the glacier express website and there are only a few times. I'm not sure, but I think the special train is what requires you to make the reservation with the extra payment for this one.
It is that, in the research that I did, and having found a route from Lugano to Zermatt with passage in Andermatt, the stretch that goes there (Andermatt) does not coincide with the glacier express site schedules.
In this way, I believe that this train that I think of taking (I'm interested in arriving in Zermatt as soon as possible), just follow the glacier express line, but it would not be the train that requires the reservation.
I hope I am right about this as I do not mind the better train that need to pay extra for the reservation.
For me, the window view will be the same, and I'm interested in arriving earlier in Zermatt and spending less (if possible, just using the Swiss Travel Pass).
Please, if anyone knows more about it, let me know if that's what I'm thinking.
