How To Swap Airline Seats & Make Money? There’s An App For That.


Facebook Seateroo app

Got assigned to the middle seat despite the fact that you’re typically globetrot as a window-seater?

Instead of relentlessly negotiating with your in-flight neighbor (which often results to a series of “No’s”) or whining to the flight attendant, there’s a new app to work your seating chart game.

Free on iOS, Seateroo is currently available only in the U.S., but it’s such a brilliant idea that we hope the app will spread internationally. Once you get on your flight, you can buy or sell your seat via the app. Each seat starts at USD $5, with Seateroo taking a 15% commission.

Here are some quick steps:

For buyers:

  1. Download the app.
  2. Search your flight number.
  3. You’ll see if there are any available seats for sale.

For sellers:

  1. Download the app.
  2. Search your flight number.
  3. Enter your seat info.
  4. Start selling at $5.

You can search five days prior to takeoff. If your transaction falls through, you can file a complain to Seateroo for a refund. For us who love our window seats and extra leg room, this app has arrived just in time to save our flights! YES.
