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.



  • Got aisles!

    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!
  • I'd like to write a good review but...

    By Gadget2044
    Using the free service, I made an error on the flight number a couple times. When I corrected it I had exceeded my number of searches for the day. I'm sure it's a lovely piece of software, but an invalid responses shouldn't count against your inquiry totals.
  • App saved me from a horrible middle seat

    By Not the biggest fan
    After the seat alert, I went back to the Delta app and was able to choose an aisle seat. That is worth real money to me.
  • App is annoyingly slow

    Typing in app is v e r y s l o w.
  • Clunky interface

    By Asdf8374
    I bought a paid seat alert for specific seats. I never got an alert but I found one of those seats open checking the airline's app on my own. The developer said in addition to selecting specific seats, my alert needs to set specific flags for whether those seats are premium, paid, or blocked. I have no idea which seats are premium, paid, or blocked. I would think a modern app would automatically select the correct options if I request specific seats. But not here. Just be careful with the paid alerts. You need to have all the flags set magically to the correct settings for it to work properly.
  • App works great!

    The app is not meant to be the same as the website, anyone reviewing it that way can't read or didn't use it. Works fine as long as you enter in the correct flight info. If the airport info does not match the flight number you will get an error.
  • Helped us!

    Great app! Did what it claims to do and we are so glad!
  • Not free

    By Lurker501
    Was once free, just tried to create an alert for a flight to Ft. Lauderdale and it said that it required a purchase of an alert. I do not have any other alerts active. Removed app.
  • Seat Alert Worked

    By Frustrated ip4 / ios5
    It works! They let me know when the seat I wanted became available altho it had previously been booked.
