This is the #1 issue that you have. This page will try to help you as much as possible.

Here is a series that will show you what public tools the airlines provide for you. Check back often as I’ll be adding more airlines as I research the information:

F9 uses www.id90travel.com and the flight page has a place where you click. You can see the load as well as where you are in line.

Hi Corky,

Thanks for the note.
Do you use ID90Travel for just F9 information? Or do you use it to see your position on the standby list on other flights?

By far United’s app is the best, to get info about Delta flights I go to there website(the full html version) from there you need to act like your booking a flight.  After you enter your departure, destination & date, you can see all the flights and select view seats.  It’s not as easy as United’s app, it does give you a good idea of open seats.

Hi Jimmy,

Thanks for the note.
I would agree about the United App being the best on the market. I’ve used many of the other Apps and you are correct. United also shows you similar functionality that you described above for Delta, but remember that the seat map just shows seats that are assigned/not assigned. While this gives you an idea, remember that there are customers who have bought a ticket and have not assigned a seat. So the flight could be overbooked and the seat map still shows seats unassigned. Also some seats could be blocked as well.

Kerwin, you are so right! I tested this method by choosing a date LAX-SYD on UA. Looked at their website, it showed many open seats including 36 in biz class. I then had someone check the loads. Guess what??? Oversold in Y and to capacity in biz! So there goes that idea. Too many people buy airline tickets on Orbitz, Travelocity, Expedia, etc. The seats they THINK they are being assigned (if they even get this far) are not reserved only requested. So do not show up on the airline’s site. I use Non-Rev Loads on FB a lot.

Hi Kevin
I’m a retired flight attendant from Frontier Airlines. We travel non-rev back and forth to France several times a year. I do have a question. I just booked a flight on Icelandair and they show the following information on the two flight under the heading FLIGHT DETAILS: The (M9) on both flights are highlighted. This has never showed up before. The flight is listed on w.w.w.myidtravel.com with a yellow happy face meaning it is fair for non-rev. Do you know what this means??
