What do you mean with "no seats available"?

Were you trying to book a ticket for this trip on www.sbb.ch/en? If so you would indeed have gotten a message that you cannot book that. Because it is to early to buy tickets.

But if you intend to get a Swiss Travel Pass you do not need to buy a ticket. Your pass is the ticket.

What you however need is a reservation. This reservation you should get on the glacier express website.

https://www.glacierexpress.ch/en/

Note: You do not need to be already in posession of a ticket or a pass to make a resrvation. You can make the reservation now, and get the ticket (or pass) later.

If you however plan to do this route using ordinary trains you do not need a reservation at all.

It would appear that indeed the Galcier Express trains do not have seats available for that day.

You can take ordinary trains. To find schedules use www.sbb.ch/en and enter "Disentis" as a VIA point.

You will have to change trains a few times, but if you do not have to much luggage with you that should not be a problem.

If your luggage is a problem, take along just an overnight bag or backpack and send your main luggage ahead to your second-next destination. https:/…reisegepaeck.html

I just tried (15.20 Swiss time) the 9.52, 19 September, Zermatt to St. Moritz 1st class tickets. Right now there are 4 (the last) tickets available, with all persons sitting together. Maybe it helps
