We fly out on Wednesday and I am just wondering if anybody knew a website where I could check how full my flight is.

Any suggestions?

There's no website out there that can do this unfortunately - in some ways it would be nice, but in other ways it would be a potential security issue

"hmmm that's a nice full flight, 1 seat left for me and my BOMB"

Phone the airline and ask them - they may tell you once they know you're already booked on the flight.

You can find out if its full by trying to book a seat on that flight.
Only way to see if its full or not.

Well, VS27 on the way out, all fare codes showing "9" (highest amount available on the system)

UC only two seats booked
PE Showing full (but due to tye 9's I would say that VH have not sold their allocation)
Econ Six single seats showing, 40% released. But again, due to teh 9's then not all seats sold, as blocked seats not showing

VS 50
UC Class fares showing 1, three seats only showing free
PE Class fares showing 9's, three singkle seats showing on unblocked map
Econ class fares showing zero. Seat map showing zero seats available.
Go for the PE upgrade!

There are websites which provide availability statistics, but the best ones are subscription based. You can get a 5 day free trial with Expert Flyer (http://www.expertflyer.com/) which would be sufficient for checking as a once-off.

what does 9 mean?
It means there are at least 9 seats left in that class.

Phone the airline and ask them - they may tell you once they know you're already booked on the flight.

there is - try Expertflyer, you get the current purchased seats info for flights so will be able to see how full/empty your trip will be.

I tried that a while ago but never could find out which codes were applicable to which class for VA - can you let me know? would be very helpful to know which letter means what!:thumbsup2
