Expertflyer will give travelers the information they need to get the best possible seat on any flight. They offer a free feature to travelers who simply need to change their seat or are trying to book a sold out flight. To use their best feature, called “Seat Alerts”, you must create an account for free and set up the alert which will notify you when the seat becomes available.
I hate nothing more than the middle seat on a plane and see a lot of value in this feature. Most airlines will only allow passengers find out if their seat is open at the time of boarding. With Seat Alerts you will no longer have to wait and can switch to the open seat online immediately. They will notify you with a text or email.
So if you prefer a window seat, aisle seat or exit row seats or need 2 seats next to each other just simply set up the alert. You don’t even have to have purchased your ticket yet to use this. They will notify you and allow you to buy it when your seat is available.
The free feature is great and allows one Seat Alert at a time. You can purchase additional alerts for $0.99 and if you are already a paid subscriber at ExpertFlyer you will get multiple alerts at once.
