Hello,

Can someone tell me if it is possible to load up the seatmap on KVS with BA as OLCI opens?

I tried before my subscription ended and I was told by the system that it is not available.

Would be great if I can look at last minute available seats in cabins so I can choose a seat with no one next to me.

(PS if I can then can I use this function on other airlines as well?)

I don't think that is possible on KVS, but why not check on BA.com? Your strategy is flawed, however, since the likelihood of that seat remaining vacant is low. Many people do not preselect their seat and are assigned one automatically.

BA is not a big issue however CX is -- new system with CX means it is no longer possoble to reassign sign or upgrade by cash at gate.

OK, but my point is that the seat map is a poor predictor of whether or not the seat next to you is free, even within three hours of the flight lots of things can and do change.

There is a free iOS and Android app that shows actual real time seat maps for flights. There is a daily limit to the number of free searches though; I'm not sure what it is.
