Trip Advisor’s SeatGuru flies to Google Play as a free app

August 1, 2012

Frequent flyers must be well aware that where they seat on the plane can mean the difference between a thoroughly pleasant flight and a stinker of an experience. This is where the Seat Guru app from Trip Advisor fame swoops in. Available now as a free download on Google Play Store, the travel app ensures that you know all your flight details – seat maps included.

The app is more effective to use before you book the ticket, as you can see in detail the seating arrangement of the flight, which include clues beyond the aisle or window question, but also legroom information, power port and other amenities, and more things that will affect your flying experience. Find out from the experts if the seat is a good, poor or standard one. If you already booked the ticket, it’ll at least give some heads up on what to expect.

When it comes to information about flights and seat plans, they have a pretty complete database. SeatGuru covers more than 700 seat maps from 100 airlines.

The SeatGuru app also keeps you up to speed on your flight status, as it provides real-time alerts to inform you of delays and arrival times. And if you’re in one of those jetting-off-somewhere-for-a-quick-holiday moods, you can use the app to look for the lowest airfares. Whether you’re a holiday maker or business traveller, the SeatGuru app should make a worthy travel companion.
