About this app

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 140 airlines that have preassigned seating.
• 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.

• If you have questions about using the app, please email us first or see the in-app FAQ page.

• APP REVIEWS ARE NOT FOR TECH SUPPORT. To get tech support, you have to email us directly at customercare@expertflyer.com - that's the only way we will know who you are and can help you, thanks.

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.
• 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.
• Also works with ExpertFlyer.com Basic and Premium subscriptions to manage your Seat Alerts.
• 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.

Note: Physical seat availability has nothing to do with Award, Upgrade, or fare ticket inventory. Please read our FAQ for more information: http://www.expertflyer.com/expertflyer-support-faq

Login with FB - no issues. Setup preferences - no issues. Created alert and send test email - no issues. Only thing I don't like is I can only search a limited number of seat maps per day to "avoid abuse" and I was just testing it out so now I cannot create the alert I need until tomorrow... Seems silly. I can understand only having one alert at a time for free, but don't limit the searches... will update if it works.

Doesn't work. Had the free alert set up but never notified me despite multiple window and aisle seats coming up and staying for a while. Thank goodness I was checking the seats myself because I was able to change. Also, rubs me the wrong way that you need to pay to modify your 1 free alert. Don't see a point in paying for any more alerts if the free one proved to not work.

It does work when the alert is created correctly. Likely the available seats were marked Paid or Premium which was a option you didn't add to your alert (not everyone can get those seats). No you don't need to pay to modify the seats of an alert. If you need further help please email us directly so we can lookup your account.

RUBBISH! don't waste your time using this very basic and primitive App! By the time you've setup your account and searched the App you might as well just call the airline. Limited seat searches per day is also extremely frustrating. Why pay for a subscription when you can just call the agent or airline for free. I don't get it! Don't bother!

The app does one thing, Seat Alerts, as clearly noted in the app description, and creating an alert requires only 1 search. If you want to use the rest of the powerful ExpertFlyer.com features, including unlimited searching, they are available on the website with our Pro feature set.
