UPDATE: From the nice folks at ExpertFlyer: We fixed the issue early this morning by switching AA seat maps to a different reservation system.
Looks like the issue has been fixed, and I had looked and scheduled this post in the midst of them rectifying the issue. Thanks for notifying me, ExpertFlyer Voice!
A quick note to all who use ExpertFlyer:
American Airlines seat maps in First and Business Class are showing many flights with a wide-open cabin on the seat map, with all seats open. But, when you look at the actual flight load and how many are booked on the flight, there’s a clear discrepancy since there are seats sold.
AA Seat Maps for First or Business cabins may show all seats as Available. This is an issue that AA is working on with their information providers and when they fix the issue it will be reflected on ExpertFlyer. Thank you for your understanding.
Just a word of caution. I was searching for several seat maps and was surprised (and delighted) to see the cabins wide open. Unfortunately, that’s not exactly the case. 😉
