SeatGuru.com shows you airplane seat maps online so you can find whether your airplane seat is over a wing or next to a lavatory. If you dislike your seat assignment after checking your placement with Seat Guru, call the airline and request a seat change.

Once you begin looking into airplane seating, you'll find vast seat options. To learn about the seat you have been assigned using Seat Guru, you must first find your plane.

Start by getting out your airplane travel itinerary and heading for SeatGuru.com. Find your airline from the list at the left side of the SeatGuru.com home page. Seat Guru offers seat maps (seating charts) for the larger airplane bodies.

To find my asigned seat or a seat I want, I'll find my plane on my itinerary - I'm looking for a three digit plane code meaning "equipment type"; my plane code on my itinerary is 744. I mouse over British Airways and choose a Boeing 747 followed by my plane code (744; shown in screenshot above) - I'll click that to see more about the plane on which I'll be flying.
