Remember that on certain codeshare flights 4 is the visible maximum in the CRS instead of the usual 9 on SK flights, so I would expect there to be much more than 4 available in each class. Check the "real" flight just to make sure...

www.etour.co.jp/solar gives you 9. However, note that the flight has to be seriously oversold to get into the low digits. This is an indication of how many seats are for sale in each class -- not how many are available.

Not on all codeshareflights... It all depends on the information from the airline... Different airlines provide different information. SK generally shows 9, but on codeshares sometimes only 4 (hadn't actually spotted this before looking at LH codeshares).
Certain airlines show 7...
So depending on which airline one travels, the maximum shown availability will be different.

I was referring to SK. An interesting example is KF (Air Botnia), which gives you 4 but the same flight with the SK codeshare number gives you 9.

Thank you for your replies. My heart made a jump when I saw 4 seats in each class, but I sobered down when I realised I was looking at the codeshare flight and the SK showing all empty.

A nice example of REALLY FULL flights can be found for MUC-&gt;ARN 23MAY. The gate agents must be hating friday afternoons with full flights and having to decide whom to bump without giving away too many DBC vouchers... that evening the alternatives via DUS and CPH are full and the MUC-FRA feeder for many many other flights is filling up fast.
