How it Works
Today, securing seating assignments for flights requires passengers to have a ticket and restricts seat selection to only unoccupied seats. Passengers hoping to find a different seat would typically wait until check-in at the airport and hope a more desirable seat is available. ExpertFlyer's Seat Alerts changes all that.

Seat Alerts now allows ticketed and non-ticketed passengers to set up an automatic alert that notifies them if occupied seats become available. Using ExpertFlyer's free Seat Alerts feature, passengers can select "Any Aisle", "Any Window", or “Any Seat” options and will automatically be notified by email or text message if any, aisle, or window seat becomes available on their desired flight, after which the passenger can change their seat assignment via their point of booking. Additional notification options are available for Any Exit Row seat, Any 2 Seats Together, or a list of specific seats that the traveler may want.

About was conceived and created by an eclectic team consisting of a veteran elite tier frequent flyer, an airline captain and corporate travel manager, and information technology professionals to deliver a 24/7 real time powerful air travel information service. The company provides its subscribers and corporate travel managers alike with a complete, concise and efficient way to access the ever-changing details of worldwide air travel information.
