Swiss card question

I will be traveling from Paris to Lausanne (and then on to Chateau d'Oex). My husband is arriving into Zurich and will be taking train down to meet me.

I was hoping that we will meet in either Lausanne or Montreux and take the train together to Chateau D'Oex. That allows us to enjoy part of the journey together and perhaps grab lunch and walk around a bit to break up the travel.

I think that the Swiss Card is the best option for us fiscally, but it seems to require that he take the most direct route to Chateau D'Oex, which is not through Lausanne.

Will he purchase a ticket using his card at the airport rail station? And should he just get a ticket to Montreux using the card - then a 50% off ticket from Montreux to Chateau D'Oex?

We may decide to throw romance to the wind and just meet at the apartment. It just sounded so much more fun to meet along the way.

Another question - generally, what is the difference in comfort/crowds for first vs second class trains in Switzerland?

Thanks!
