You've booked a trip to your favorite getaway but the plane is full and you're stuck in the middle seat, sound familiar? Let Seat Alerts® by ExpertFlyer help find you a better seat in 3 easy steps:

1. Look up the Seat Map of your flight.
2. Set up a Seat Alert to find window seats, aisle seats and more.
3. Get notified if your preferred seat is found.

Seat Alerts will monitor the available seats right up until the flight departs. If it becomes available you can change your seat when your Seat Alert notification arrives, just contact the airline or the travel agency that booked your ticket. Seat Alerts finds a window or aisle seat better than 75% of the time.

• With a Free account, you can set up one Free Seat Alert at a time using the Any Seat, Any Window or Any Aisle options. Other advanced alert options require a fee.
• Seat maps include SeatGuru® seat ratings so you know which seat is the right seat for you. Just click on a seat to see its rating and review
• If you need multiple Seat Alerts at the same time, additional alerts and alert options are available for purchase
• Supports over 150 airlines that have preassigned seating

Notes about app functionality:
• Account registration is required to use the Seat Alert app, this is so we can notify you of found seats and keep track of your alerts across devices.
• Miles Award or Upgrade searching and alerting is not the same as Seat Map searching and alerting. This app is Seat Map Alerts only. For Miles Awards & Upgrades, please use our website.
• Also works with Basic and Premium subscriptions to manage your Seat Alerts.
• Seat Alerts checks the seat maps several times a day. If you find and take an open seat before the next check of the alert, you won't be notified.
• To prevent abuse, a limited about of seat maps can be viewed each day, resetting every 24 hrs. Only a single seat map search is needed to create a Seat Alert.

Almost perfect, iPhone X support needed!

Works great, 4 star for not having iPhone X screen support. Please upgrade.

Fabulous app

Used previously many times to notify me when reward seats become available, and when specific seats become available that had been taken at the time I booked. Using the web version of this site and travelling on a staff standby ticket it's very useful to see how many tickets are still selling in each class on multiple airlines so I can judge whether a flight is worth waitlisting on. As for complaints that the subscription is too expensive - really? If you can find this info and functionality for free elsewhere (you can't!) then use that service instead.

Works great

Have used this a few times now for economy, premium and business class seats and each time as soon as seats have become available I’ve received the email and notification gone to my airline site and the seats are available great app highly recommend
