    It seems TripIt launched a new service called Seat Tracker ( that allows a passenger to track a better seat on a flight. While the idea looks good, I am wondering whether this will really work as I am not sure the airlines will love it… Any thought?


    I won’t be using it, as I seldom fail to get a decent seat.

    For people travelling in long haul Y, it may be useful, but I am cynical to wonder how often good seats will free up.

    As to whether the arilines will like it, if they are selling extra legroom seats and they have free inventory, I imagine they’ll be favourably, as if they have to allocate the seats for free at checkin, they’ve lost the margin if someone pays for it and if a FQTV snaps the seat for free, no big deal.
