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!

First Class - F A
Club World/Europe - J C D R I
Economy Plus - W E T
Economy - Y B H K M L V S N Q O G


Generally, the closer to the left in the above cabin classes, the more expensive and flexible the ticket/bucket is.

The numbers relate to the number of seats BA currently are willing to sell in each bucket (bearing in mind they may oversell etc).

Also, they are not cumulative - if it is J9 C8 it doesn't necessarily mean there are 17 seats to sell. However 9 is the maximum number it shows in any individual bucket even if there are actually more than 9 available.

Hi,

Could someone let me know how busy the following flight is please for next Wednesday 26th Jan: BA0061 @ 18.15pm

Also, seat maps on BA still showing 4 x twins at the rear but I fear this may change as its classed as 77W which I can only see has 2 x twins at the rear, anyone point me in the right direction before I pull the trigger and book last minute.

Thanks

Superb reply, thanks!

I take it the blue seats are taken and availability is pretty good at present if I read it correctly?

Thanks again

Yes, the blue seats are already taken.

The white ones are available to 'book' - however, other passengers may not have selected seats already though so the cabin could actually be 'fuller' on the flight day than the plan shows currently.
