swiss rail note re 1st class

I've been traveling in Switz. for over 50 years (in the early days with a Eurailpass [1st class]), now with the aid of a 1/2 fare "card", I use 1st class day passes. For the first time, a week ago on two different trains, there were coaches labeled "1st class", each seat in addition had "1st class" on the head cushion. BUT, the seating arrangement was 2 + 2, not the usual 1 + 2, hence narrower seats. Have they gone over to "cost cutting"?
[Besides less crowding, one of the perks of 1st class is (or should be), wider seats (as well as more leg room).
