This release also has Facebook integration so flyers can post photos from aircraft and seats to give you an even more realistic view of a seat assignment or aircraft.  When you sign in to SeatGuru with your Facebook account you can also post reviews of seats or aircraft.

In all there are 20 airlines that have been updated in SeatGuru including American Airlines, British Airways, Frontier, United, US Airways, JetBlue, Lufthansa, Air France, KLM and Air Canada to name a few.  Be sure to check out the release notes in the App Store to see the full list.

SeatGuru is a free app and is available in the App Store.  It is designed for iPhone – sadly no iPad interface just yet.
