What do you guys think of this seatguru.com?? I think it's wonderful, and I rely on it constantly! Only found one mistake so far.

It's funny. When I make travel reservations with my agent, I always choose a specific seat, and she is always like "you know so much." I told her that I use SG.com, and she understood! (Although, on the routes I fly a lot, I don't need it!)

Excellent resource. Glad that it covers some international carriers too!

A similar tool, but just for Virgin Atlantic (which isn't offered by SeatGuru) is on http://www.virginflyer.com

Any other sites out there which cover other airlines? Might be worth building a list of all the known ones for those future occassions when travelling on an unfamiliar carrier.

There are a couple of active DJ posters in the forum, but as the site itself is UK-based, it's a bit VS-centric.

You volunteering to hunt out the Blue info for the site?  Smile

I love Seatguru--it has helped me avoid undesirable seats and get decent ones on several occasions. One time I even had a near-argument on the phone with a DL reservations agent. She said she could offer me a certain seat on a 757 but that there was no window. I checked Seatguru, and it said that the no-window rows were ahead and behind the row that was available, but said nothing about that row. So I ended up taking the seat...and guess which was right? Yep, Seatguru.  Smile

It's really a valuable resource, especially for longer flights where it really stinks to discover that your seat doesn't recline, or that you're constantly being elbowed by people waiting to use the lav. My only complaint is that they don't have more airlines and equipment types listed!
