ExpertFlyer vs Airline website discrepancy
I’m looking at a flight from Amsterdam to Bali on KLM. Expertflyer shows that there are at least 8 J class seats available but when I click through the booking process on klm.com and go to the seat map I see only 3 seats available. Can anyone tell me which is a more reliable source of information?
I’m trying to assess my chances of buying an upgrade at the airport.
Well, in general the seat maps aren’t an accurate indicator of availability. Some of those might just be blocked for airport control, etc.
If there are x seats in a fare bucket, that typically means the airline is willing to sell that many seats. This could mean they’re willing to oversell a cabin, but that’s less common in business class.
