If you’re the type of traveler that likes to stay informed, we have the website for you. But, let’s be frank, ExpertFlyer.com is not for the occasional flier. Instead, it’s for the traveler that wants to track upgrade and award seat space otherwise not publicly available without calling the airline, monitor flight loads, and learn more about flight delay and operational statistics. Or, shall we say, an informed flight geek!
The multifunctional ability of the site, which costs $99 per year, is expansive. You can pay monthly ($4.99 for basic service or $9.99 for unlimited Premium service) or use some of the site’s free features to try it out.
An especially unique feature is the seat alert function for those that prefer certain seats on a plane. Enter your preferred seat (bulkhead, exit row, window) and an alert will let you know when that seat becomes available to reserve. Other features include airline timetables, real-time seat maps, visa requirements, and detailed fare information and rules.
For those interested in even deeper knowledge about a flight, ExpertFlyer goes into the exact details of a delay, the number of seats within a specific fare class, and the chance to monitor overall flight loads (helpful if you want to change to a different flight or volunteer a seat on oversold flights).
It should be noted that not all airlines’ data is accessible on ExpertFlyer. Just take a peek at the site’s participating airlines before signing up to make sure the site works for you.
