My wife and I have 3-month Global Pass 1st Class. So far, so good, but after patiently waiting for prices for seat reservations to appear for late October 2023, it looks like the only option for a seat reservation on the ECB85 Direct from Munich to Venice is 2nd Class. This could mean one of two or three things: 1. 1st Class pass holders don’t need a seat reservation and “you are ready to board” really applies. 2. 1st Class pass holders cannot reserve a 1st class seat and may or may not get a 1st class seat depending on availability. Or maybe 3. There are no 1st class seats on the ECB85? I think #3 doesn’t apply because I checked Seat 61 and there are photos. I’m wondering if I want comfort and piece-of-mind:, A. Do I have to reserve 2nd Class? Or, B. I should stop worrying and just show up for my ECB85 train without a seat reservation because there should be two first class seats available on the ECB85 from Munich to Venice in late October? Appreciate your thoughts on this and the general question of how busy 1st Class is between Oct 1 and Mid December and whether I should just ignore “seat reservations recommended”. thanks!
