Frequent business and pleasure travelers become very familiar with SeatGuru.com, a travel website that's been around for a few years. SeatGuru is the best possible place on the Internet to get information on airplane seating.
You can pull up seat maps for just about any airline and aircraft type and get an idea of how desirable that seat is. SeatGuru, which is part of TripAdvisor's stable of travel sites, released a free iPhone app today that will help you choose the best seat on any flight.
How does the app work? If you know your airline, flight number, and the date you'll be flying, you can enter that information into the app and it will give you a tappable list of the flight segments. Tap on the one of interest to you, and it displays a seat map of the most likely aircraft type you'll be flying on.
