Are you planning for a vacation overseas, and ready to book a flight? We would suggest you to stop, check out the Jets app, before you book your flight seats.
Jets is an app for the iOS platform that shows you a seating of almost all aircrafts of almost all commercial airlines on the planet. All you have to do is input your flight number, or navigate by airline/aircraft/continent of airline company and you get the entire catalog of all the seating plans for the different aircrafts of different airlines.
We absolutely love this app because it’s not only the seating plan they give you, but also the pros and cons of each seat of each aircraft. So lets say you were looking into booking a seat in an economy class. You think that since it’s an economy class, all seats would pretty much be the same except for the aisle and window seats. However, if you happen to love to sit on a window seat because you prefer watching the scenery, you could be in a risk of not being able to, even if you’ve booked a window seat through the online booking system. This is because some aircrafts do not have windows on their “window” seats, due to the seat size and arrangements. This is one of the details that this app will show you. The app will show you the pros and cons of the seat.
So another example: the app will tell you whether your seat is close to the toilets or not. This might come in handy if you prefer to sit near a toilet. The app will also tell you if you have foot space or not. Some seats actually don’t have much space for you to store any of your baggages. The app also tells you if your seat tends to be in a position where its very noisy, especially if it’s a seat from the very back row.
This app tells you a whole load of information, way more than the information that most airline companies give you online. Most of these airline companies only give you information regarding the seating plan, and that’s it. They don’t give you all the other details we’ve mentioned. And that’s why we love this app so much. This app will cost you $2.99 and we think it’s a must have app, especially if you travel a lot.
