Candid traveller photos of aircraft cabins coupled with the ability to scan for the lowest prices for airlines globally feature in a revamped TripAdvisor Flights search service.

Traveller photos and amenities features are available from today (Tuesday) on TripAdvisor Flights across 31 countries and in 17 languages.

Users can find out what in-flight services can be anticipated before they book, including Wi-Fi, power ports and inflight entertainment. Available legroom (tight, average, spacious) is also detailed, so travellers can find the most comfortable seat.

Seat type and pitch, as well as thousands of candid traveller photos from SeatGuru of airline seats and cabins and seat maps, are provided.

The results display now clearly identifies thousands of aircraft equipped with extra legroom seats.

TripAdvisor Flights general manager Bryan Saltzburg said: “The in-flight experience can vary dramatically from one itinerary to the next, from cramped leg room and no seatback video on one plane to spacious seats and Wi-Fi access on another – and despite the vast differences – those flights might actually have the same fare.

“The new TripAdvisor Flights experience provides transparency into the complete in-flight experience to enable flyers to make the best booking decision.”

TripAdvisor also continues to offer its Fees Estimator that dynamically calculates the cost of baggage and other amenities into the live display.
