Swiss Rail Pass -- 1st Class or 2nd Class?

What is the difference between the two -- we will be traveling with our 13 and 16 year old children. Is 1st class worth the extra price?

2nd Class is 2+2 seating, first class is 2+1, with a little bit extra legroom. No need for first class unless somebody else is paying.

Since you are a group of 4, it is best to grab facing seats (first come first served). See photo:
You sometimes get a small table. Exact details vary between different models of train.

Some of the trains are double-deckers. Photo:
