Flight 412 is no problem. Still a few empty seats, but well worth the try. You'll get on.

Flight 261 is, again, no problem. It's almost full, but open seats, none the less.

Have a great trip. YVR is a GREAT city!!!!!

I am wanting to move to an exit row, and plan to do online check in 24hrs in advance. Can you choose Exit Rows on Continental when checking in at home?

If they're available, yup. You have to agree to the standard exit row provision, but other than that its no problem.

Ryan,

You really need to call the non-rev assist line. Posting load information on a public website will get someone fired, or at least very seriously in trouble.

There is also no sense in me calling a non rev department as I dont even fly as a non-rev customer.

.. that's also the only way you'll get a good "idea" of how heavy a flight is... since we (employees) normally do not have access to other airlines' inventory, their non-rev lines will normally tell you how full (or bad) a flight is looking without releasing that data. Its just not normal public knowledge... and if you call res and ask those questions, they will get very suspicious.

are you hoping to get bumped or something?

Note though that airlines' (for most US airlines, at least) reservations agents are required* upon request to disclose if a given flight is oversold (they just have to give you a yes/no, however, they are not required to tell you how full a non-oversold flight is nor are they required to tell you by how many seats they're oversold by).

* For CO, see Contract of Carriage Rule 4, paragraph G; for DL, see Domestic General Rules Rule 200 paragrahph 4; for NW, see Domestic General Rules rule 115 paragraph B, etc, etc.

Just for your info, and for that of so many others here, it is impossible to get a Load Factor of a flight until AFTER it has departed.

Load Factor is Seats Occupied/Seat Capacity*100, expressed as a percentge.

What most people are generally really looking for is Availabilty.

Capacity - Booked = Availability. It's as simple as ABC!

Try to book the flight to see what seats are available, if that is what you are searching. Better seats, call CO and see if their are seats available.

Question though, if you aren't travelling stand-by, why would you need to know the loads (how many people are booked)?
Just curious.

We have 9 people flying together, but aren't currently seated together and didnt know the likelihood of swapping seats.

If worse comes to worse, just ask, once onboard, for flight attendants to help or, if they are busy during boarding, by all means ask others to switch seats.

Above all, have a good trip.
