1st class occupancy rate

New Author


Is there any publicly available data on the occupancy rate of the first class vs second class?

Similarly, is there any data regarding the profitability of the 1st vs 2nd class?

If they are not readily available, why, and is SBB working on it?

The answer given by the federal council in 2019 to a related question is not satisfying:

Hello @NicolasRey 

Thank you for your query.

There is an approximate load indicator in the timetable with the ''males''. This approximate forecast always refers to the front years. A completely accurate display is currently not available.

I wish you a nice day.

Kind regards,
