Ever wonder where the best seats are on any given commercial airliner?

Ever wonder where the best seats are on any given commercial airliner? provides you with detailed plane models from various airlines and color coded seat layouts so you can decide which seat is best on a particular plane. It is much more detailed than the official websites of the various carriers its references.

This site is loaded with intelligent information.
  • which type of multimedia will you have
  • does your seat have an electrical outlet for your laptop
  • what kind of food
  • children accommodation
  • Internet capacity.
You can chose from most major airlines: "for detailed seat map graphics, in-depth seat specific comments on seats with limited recline, reduced legroom, mis-aligned windows. Color-coding to help identify superior and substandard seats. In-seat power port locations. Galley, lavatory, Exit Row and closet locations."!

There is also a guide for "Guide to Booking the Best Airline Seats"

SeatGuru goes mobile

Mobile SeatGuru is a version of the website that is optimized for handheld devices. This new version of the site simply requires a device with an HTML capable browser such as the popular BlackBerry 7000 series, TREO, Dell Axim, HP iPAQ, or various advanced mobile phones. This service is free! Just visit the following website from your PDA:
Though you'll still need to visit the site for the full breadth of seat comments, Mobile SeatGuru includes the following features to help travelers on the go:

  • Coverage of all our domestic and international airline carriers; over 200 aircraft!
  • Seat map graphics with color-coding.
  • Seat Pitch and Width measurements.
  • In-flight entertainment and Power Port availability.
  • Location of Power Ports and adapter type.

    The Mobile SeatGuru version covers all the domestic and international airlines found on and will be updated to reflect any changes that are made to the site to ensure that the information provided is always current and accurate.

How did it all start?

In October 2001 frequent flyer Matthew Daimler launched with a single color-coded interactive airplane seating chart. Having realized the vast differences between airline seats, he was determined to build a repository of this useful information and share it with other travelers. Over ten million visitors later, SeatGuru has enjoyed incredible success and has expanded to over 275 airplane seatmaps from over 40 different airlines.
