Can I book a first class reservation on the glacier express if I have a second class swiss rail pass?

I thought I could book a 2nd class 8 day Swiss Rail Pass and then make a reservation on The Glacier Express and upgrade ? Is this not possible even if I'm willing to pay more money for the reservation?

    Hi Lori,

    Yes, you can do that. If you book a reservation for 1st class but you only have a 2nd class rail pass, then you would be charged a supplement locally to compensate. Since this kind of supplement is only able to be assessed locally, we would have no information about how much it would be. You can pay the supplement either at the ticket window before boarding or with the conductor after you've boarded.
