As I understand, most airlines use either Amadeus or Galileo (and some use Sabre?) for reservations.
Amadeus have a great facility on their website ( http://www.amadeus.net ) called Checkmytrip under which you can enter your 6 digit booking locator and get seating plans, check the status and times, a/c type etc etc. Does anyone know if Galileo or Sabre provide the same thing? Can't find it myself - any links anyone?

Slight correction. No airlines use Galileo for their reservations. Galileo is a travel agent system only. UA use Apollo, which is owned/operated by Galileo, but it is a (sort of) seperate system (it runs on the same machine, I think, but has seperate software and databases).
I think about 40 or 50 airlines use Sabre for Res and Inventory, and 150 use Amadeus (for Res, but hosted across 7 different inventory systems, Altea Plan (1A), Alpha3 (AF), Lufthansa Systems (LH), SITA Gabriel, Iris (RG), Resiber (IB), ResAid (SK) and Royal (TG)

Guys, thanks for the clarification/info.
I've tried my SAA reservation number in all of these, but can't seem to get a match - anyone know where I can look it up at the seating plan info on SAA website is so small, you can't read the seat numbers!?
