How do I find seats available before purchasing

How can I find out how many business class seats are available BEFORE actually booking?
On Emirates website unable to do so before purchasing tickets.
Seems that on their website you can only see seats after paying. Would like to see seats before I buy.

BKK to SYD
Flight# EK 418
Will need x6 business seats

Thanks

You can do a dummy booking which will let you know if up to 9 seats are available for purchase before you get to the payment page.

If it's availability of actual seat rows/numbers, then Expert Flyer will show you.

This is from USA point of sale. The availability from Bangkok POS will almost certainly be different so YMMV.

If you want to see the seat map for a flight, get an expertflyer subscription and that'll allow you to see seats booked on any flight.
