Website Spotlight: Seat Guru
It's Thursday so that means it's time for Website Spotlight! Every week, I'll showcase a website that's helped me save money, time or just a great tool in helping you plan various things in your life.
This week, I'd like to share with you Seat Guru. This is a great tool to have, especially if you're thinking about planning a "Trip of the Month".
Before you book a flight, you can check seat guru to see details, not only of your seat, but of the plane as a whole. You can check if the plane is equipped with amenities such as wi-fi or what kind of movies are currently being offered on-board.
People who have recently taken the same plane, give their reviews on their seat, the service, and the airline in general. Basically, since it's sponsored by Trip Advisor, you get approval ratings per aircraft, just like you would a hotel.
Save yourself the agony of finding out after you get on board that your flight doesn't have personal screens or that there is only one bathroom for the whole cabin to share for a 5 hour flight (trust me, not pleasant).
