When booking a flight you want to make sure you have the best seat in the cabin you are in. Just because you are in coach, doesn’t mean there aren’t seats that are better than others. One of our favorite tools, Seat Guru, recently updated their seat maps to help you find the best seat on the plane.


What is Seat Guru?

SeatGuru is a website that features aircraft seat maps, seat reviews, and a color-coded system to identify which are the best seats on each aircraft. SeatGuru has been around since 2001 and has been owned by Tripadvisor since 2007. Simply visit seatguru.com to get started.

How to Use Seat Guru’s Seat Maps

Go to Seat Guru’s website and have your airline, flight number, and date of the flight ready. Enter this information into the site. Seat Guru will then populate flight information and provide you with the flight’s seat map. You will see that various seats are highlighted with different colors.

If you highlight over any of these seats, it will provide you additional details on that seat including limited recline, close proximity to the lavatory, no window and more. Seat Guru also provides a key for your reference.

Bottom Line

Not all aisle or window seats are equal.  Do yourself a favor and use Seat Guru to find the best seat possible when booking your next flight.  Avoid getting stuck in a window seat without a window or right next to the bathroom on a long-haul flight.
