As far as accuracy it looks like this site gives you the same information a travel agent sees. It isn't, however, what the airline sees so it's not always accurate. Only the airline will see the exact number of seats and if the flight is oversold.

I compared these maps to the seat maps on the airline websites, and most of them matched almost perfectly. Those that weren't the same only had a discrepancy of one or two seats. This is good because it gives seat maps for airlines that don't publish seat maps on their websites. Overall, this site seems to be very good.

Thank you very much for posting that link.
This kind of site is exactly what I was searching for for a long time.
I just found out that I had a lot of luck by reserving some good seats on my DL flight from FRA to ATL in September as there are very few window seats left.
And when you´re checking some transatlantic flights during the next few days, business doesn´t seem t to be too bad at this time...

Re-the seat map how can it show seats occupied a month ahead? These are not reserved seats as there is another icon for that. So what does this mean exactly? Can anybody confirm some random flights with an actual CRS?

I didn't find it accurate at all for my Qatar Airways flight. It showed 20 something passengers on my Doha to London flight a couple of days before the flight. In reality there were near 200 passengers on the flight.

I had my mother (travel agent) check it with Worldspan CRS for two flights coming up this weekend. The flights were both Northwest operated by Mesaba flights, an Avro RJ and a Saab 340. The info on the website was the same thing that she could find in her CRS.
Don't take this information as completely accruate, however. As QatarAirways pointed out, there can be huge differences. The airlines aren't going to release the whole truth about their bookings even through CRS. Some airlines will also be more accurate than others, I'd guess US and European are probably the safest.

The numbers next to the class code are not the actual seats left. The largest number is 7 the smallest is 1. They are only an indication of the flight status and differ from one destination to another, even on the same airline. For example a destination where there are a considerable number of no shows, the flight may be overbooked but still showing as saleable.

Thanks for the link it just made me phone up an airline. At the counter the lady told me there wasn't any window seats left anymore, looking at the seatmap here I saw there were some. Funny enough when I phoned the airline up the girl gave me the possibilities which were shown free on the seat map. Thanks for posting the link! Just made me avoid 8 hours cramped in the middle and got my a window seat!

I just checked my flight to HNL from LAX and it says we have a tripple 7 for the way there, and a 767-300 on the way back. Expedia says that it's a 777 both ways. Who is right? Flight 53, LAX-HNL June 21, Flight 54 HNL-LAX June 26.
