Which SeatSpy tier should you use?

Posted by Fred


Whether you’re a savvy-saver, BA reward flight fanatic, or a simple #AviationGeek, it’s hard not to be impressed by flight savings. Reward flights are some of the best ways to utilise airline loyalty points and make great savings at the same time.

Recently launched SeatSpy is the leading destination for Virgin Atlantic, KLM, Air France and BA reward flights. Using its exclusive algorithm the site works by curating all the latest reward flights available over a 12-month period. In just a few clicks you can check availability for reward flight seats return or one-way, across different cabins, the costs in points are also shown.

There’s three levels of membership available, from free Economy usage to the exclusive First Class package. If you’re unsure which membership is best for you, read on to get the lowdown.

Economy membership 

For those who fly exclusively British Airways and don’t mind not knowing first about reward flight seats, this is the membership for you.

This free service entitles you to a handful of features. This includes unlimited British Airways searches online. Additionally, you will receive daily alerts on the latest BA seats released, rather handy for flight inspiration.

Best suited to: Light users who tend to fly exclusively with British Airways.

Cost: Free

Premium membership

Anyone who has tried to book flights using loyalty points knows that there’s a dark art to securing reward flights. Knowing how to book them takes skill and time. If you’re a frequent flier, a savvy online shopper, or an early adopter in travel trends, then Premium membership is right for you. Also, if you have both BA and Virgin Atlantic points to use, this is a smart choice.

As a Premium member you benefit from unlimited access to the BA reward flight finder tool and four other airline searches a month. You can also get inspired with the handy ‘where can I go’ tool. Perhaps most useful of all, is the hourly alert frequency, notifying you when new reward flight seats become available. 

Best suited to: Frequent fliers and early adopters

Cost: Premium membership costs £2.99 per month.

First Class membership

As the name suggests, this is the most exclusive membership going, offering a full service of perks and benefits. Whether you fly extensively or have a large number of points to use up, this will provide a comprehensive overview of reward flight availability on British Airways and Virgin reward flights, as well as other carriers monitored. 

Crucially, you’ll be the first to know when new seats become available, with instant notifications by text or WhatsApp (coming soon). This gives you a head start on any other member, ensuring you get first choice, rather useful when reward flight seats go super quick. Our First Class members save hundreds of pounds on tickets via this feature.

With more exciting collaborations in the pipeline, you’ll also be first in line to hear about other rewards in the future.

Best suited to: Frequent fliers, smart shoppers, and those with lots of loyalty club points across several different airlines

Cost: First Class membership costs £7.99 per month.
