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!

And how full % wise would you say economy is based on what you submitted?
The letters denote fare buckets (described here) and are the number of tickets being sold by the airline, rather than the number of seats available. Generally 9 = there are 9 or more tickets in this fare bucket being sold and 0 = fare bucket sold out, anything inbetween shows limited availability. The more 9's you see the quieter the flight usually is.
BTW, availability for your flight has changed since Pilot checked: F1 A0 C0 J2 R0 D2 I0 W0 P0 Y5 B5 H5 K4 M3 L3 G3 V0 S0 N0 Q0 O0 E0

Could somebody please check MAN-LHR BA1371 departing on 18/02/22?

I assume it's sold out as it isn't appearing when searching to purchase tickets. Thanks

Very full. No Economy tickets for sale by the look of it, just one J bucket ticket.

BAEC Bronze, flying on Sunday. Currently in 2A.



Current seating plan from ExpertFlyer

Am I right to assume that the first row is blocked for Gold Member but currently no one has formally occupied a seat?
