Current methods to check fare/booking class availability:
  • Expertflyer.com $99 / year
  • KVS Fees vary
  • Travel Agent friends
If you are requesting flight load / class availability, please provide the following:

1. Actual travel date (don't say tomorrow, or similar, as that is ambiguous given the global flyertalk membership)
2. Departure and arrival airport codes
3. Flight number

Thanks!

I'm currently booked on BA0173 LHR-JFK next month on the 18th. I currently have a free choice of seats in the whole WT cabin. Does anybody know what the current flight loads have been like recently on this flight/route? Is the flight likely to be full?

Thank you

I know not often a good indicator, but looking at todays seat map (2.5 hours pre depart) seems only half full

Your flight is in half term, not sure if that will also impact loads?

Yeah just under half full today.

The 18th might be busier though due to half term

Here you go - UK POS: For info to help the 'searcher' and as per the thread wiki, in future could you post the airport codes for departure/arrival and not just the flight number please:
