Default See What Seats Are Free Before Booking

Hello,

I am booking economy for the first time in ages. As I have now been spoilt with business I want to grab a preferred economy seat. Is it possible to see if these are free before booking please? I have a flexible schedule so I can change to another day if there aren't any free.

Thanks

You can use the Seat Alerts by Expertflyer app. You will have to create an account but it’s free.

Free account limit up to 5 searches / day.

Another way is to use Expedia (US Site), search for the flight "Preview Seats"
You can see the seat map, but the graphics suck, best to have a seat map beside for reference. Orbitz also displays seat previews, but graphics not any better too

not sure I fully understand your question. The flow in SQ website, they will let you choose the seat before you make payment. So you should be able to see what seat avail before you commit to buy that flight.

Unless I totally miss your question.

You can select the flexi fare which allow you to select the seats (including forward zone).

Lite fare also can see the seats available but just need to pay

Why ? Which routing ?
First select the fare, then key in your detail, skip the insurance part, then onto seat selection n you can see the seats available.

Hello,

Thanks to those who replied. I managed to find it out visa the SQ site. I am not sure what I was doing before. Mustn't have been paying attention and pressed "skip to payment".

Are the extra legroom seats the same price for basic economy fares as they are for flexi fares please?

Thanks

As far as I'm aware. It's a fee per sector irrespective of the fare you pay.
