The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest of the year for airlines in the U.S. and it’s also one of the most stressful for flyers. It’s pretty much guaranteed that the airport will be crowded and the dreaded middle seat is the one you will be shunted to.
That is, unless you have a good tool to help, and that is where ExpertFlyer.com comes in. It’s a subscription-based service that sends updates to a mobile device or computer about new fares, seat availability, and awards. It’s more than a booking engine (a la Kayak.com) – it actually shows the “fare buckets” that airlines use and allows users to see which seats on the plane are going to cost them more (or less). It works with about two dozen airlines, including some foreign carriers. At a bare minimum it can help you get a better seat, especially this week.
Since ExpertFlyer does a lot of the work it means the user doesn’t have to spend hours surfing airline sites – which can reduce the stress of flying and make your holiday that much happier.
