Airlines are pretty good at hiding numbers to create scarcity and to maintain demand at a higher price. You may have been to an airline or OTA website that says ‘only 5 seats left’ or ‘only 2 seats left’ to help you to a ‘quick decision’ to purchase. You follow through and arrive at the airport to find the plane is 1/2 full…at best. What???

At Future.Travel we followed up on this annoyance to the consumer and implemented a way for a customer to see the available seat numbers remaining on a flight. Airlines are not real happy with us, but that is what happens when you introduce transparency to the booking and ticketing path for an airline ticket.
