What is it? An interactive aircraft seating chart displaying information such as in-seat power port locations, bassinets, good seat versus poor seat, seats with limited recline or legroom and location in relation to galleys, lavatories and exit rows.
What you’ll find: There are over 700 aircraft seat maps from nearly 100 airlines all over the world. About to embark on the longest flight out of Australia – the QF7 to Dallas? Lucky you! Punch in your flight details and up pops the seating chart for that aircraft configuration. You can also compare airline seat pitch, width, video type, laptop power and power type.
Why we like it: When you’re about to spend several hours in a cylindrical tube with hundreds of other travellers, it’s nice to know you’ve done your research and snaffled the best seat in the house. Unfortunately, aircraft type can change at the last minute but you can’t kick yourself for not trying.
