With many airlines overhauling fleets, and installing new seats right and left, wouldn't it be great if seatguru.com added photos of the different seats on their listed seat maps? I don't even know who to suggest this to, but I figured someone on FT might know...
There are a few other projects in the works for similar content that I am aware of but nothing publicly available that I've seen.
SeatGuru has a feedback/suggestions link on their page that you can try. One of the problems that they are likely to run in to is getting the photos and whether it is considered commercial use and therefore prohibited by the carriers. Getting a bunch of PR shots from the airlines isn't quite as useful as real-life shots.

Seatguru doesn't even have accurate seat maps for foreign airlines. I think they should improve that before they add in any more features.
