I want to thank everyone here for making it clear to me that I needed a seat reservation and a ticket or Swiss pass of the correct class to cover these trips.

On both the BEX and GEX in my carriage this week there was confusion by passengers and the conductor had to issue tickets for people who had seat reservations but not the correct pass or ticket to cover the trip.

At least they issued tickets and not fines! 😉

I hate to think it but do you think being in first class on the BEX and excellence class on the GEX made a difference?

The conductors were were very nice. The BEX conductor also sorted out their return train trip on the spot as well!

You did the Excellence Class!? How was it? Been waiting for someone to report on it. Never thought it would happen.
