How to tell how full a flight is
I am looking to book a flight for my son and I to travel to Canada to be with family (we are Canadian so ok to travel). Is there a way to check loads of a past flight and an upcoming flight? Trying to take the quickest route as my son is only 2 but want to make sure the plane isn’t full.
A way to check the loads of a flight in the future, that a lot of people use, is an app called “StaffTraveler”. It’s primarily used by airline staff to check flight loads to see if they should list to non-rev on a specific flight, but it is useful in this situation as well. You just enter the flight info and submit, and wait some time, and eventually somebody will respond with the current flight load hope this helps!
