I heard about Seat Guru about two years ago, and I’ve checked on it for every flight I’ve gone on since when choosing my seats.
When I went to London in May 2015, I initially forgot about it but luckily was able to do a seat swap. After checking it out on Seat Guru, it turns out my leg room would have been terrible since there was a box of some sort under the seat in front of me. Thankfully I dodged that potential mishap. The website is so easy to use and it’s worth it especially if you want to ensure you have a window in your row, or at least some extra legroom (every little bit helps!)
I took some screenshots of the site using details of an Air Canada flight leaving on a Tuesday from Toronto to London (as was my most recent experience) to give some further insight.
After you enter your flight info, your scheduled plane shows up, and at first sight you can tell exactly where you would ideally enjoy sitting (and where you want to avoid!) Obviously people aren’t fond of sitting by the back restrooms. You can hover over the seats to get a brief description on them to see if the issue is something that would bother you or not.
This is a website I have been really thankful to find, so I’m hoping that you’ll find it of some help the next time you have to take off somewhere!
