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.



  • Works great!

    Got me out of the middle seat! Just make sure you use the correct airport pay her and airline flight information. Their support is very helpful and replies quickly if you need help.
  • Good app, latest update made it slower

    I’ve been a happy user for quite some time and mostly use it at boarding time to see the seatmap and then request a new seat either at gate or in the Airlines’ app. This means I can be checking multiple maps on different legs quite quickly. However there was a recent update that has made it more “clunky” to use. Where one earlier could start to type the IATA codes immediately there is now a delay of about a second before the cursor appears and let you write. This is the case for the airport field and the airline field, but the flight number is fast as it used to be. It’s not critical but it’s annoying to wait for the cursor when in a rush. I’ve actually used it as I was talking to Check-in to make sure he was telling me the right information. All delays in the app can make me unable to check concurrently with the agent. I’d appreciate a fix for this.
  • Not worth it

    By TPoitevin
    Downloaded the app, entered a flight I’m already booked on, and the app had the wrong seat configuration. I’m already in 13F, but the app didn’t show a row 13 at all. Plus, I need to select an option for “Windows in front of [my specific seat]” OR “Exit Row Window”. You can’t do this with this app unless you pay a buck to manually pick the seats you’d like. The app already has advertising, so why microcharge people? There are truly free seat finder apps out there that are better. I uninstalled this one immediately.
  • better using the airline app

    By Rygvlike
    better using the airline app only thing this app it might notify you but if you're looking to find seat together it will cost you on this app better to just ask the airline or ask the passages to trade
  • No Alert Received

    By jab233
    Didn’t work for me. Found the seat I requested the alert for on my own. Edit: 1 star to 4. I did just receive an alert for an available exit. Maybe I just happened to find the exit row I chose before the app had a chance to alert me.
  • 3 Seat Finder Option Needed

    By ReiningSunShine
    Great app; I’ve used it several times when it was just me and my husband traveling but now with a toddler, the ability to set up an alert to find 3 seats together is not an option. Hoping that will be feature available in a future update.
  • WHY?

    By Corky3615
    So.....AFTER I have ALREADY booked my flight (WITHOUT any advice on which seats are preferable . . . . (Oh...Seat Alert uses SEAT GURU’s research to advise on seat it!) THEN, once, Seat Alert will send me a notification to get me out of the bind I’m in (from booking blind instead of using, say, Seat Guru when booking) if something better happens to come along. Um....don’t think so, but thanks anyway.
  • Job not done? My fault?

    By michiganconnie
    I paid for a Seat Alerts on my flight and requested one of four or six additional seats if they opened. I checked myself every day and got the seat I wanted on my own. I did not know I had to check paid seats. Being a medallion member I don’t have to pay for those seats However I will try again and see if it works better.
  • Got aisles!

    By Mawelsh
    Went from four middle seats when I booked CMH-LAX for Christmas to two aisles and a middle/window. Worked great! Thank you!!!
  • Very useful

    By Bobtraveler
    App is easy to use and provides a great capability in providing updated seat information vs. having to return to airline seat maps over and over again. A must for business travelers to stay out of middle seats!
