“What’s great about SeatBoost is there is no cost to use our app to bid for an upgrade, and you only pay if you win,” Oniya told Express.co.uk.
“And if you don’t win, you keep your original seat, so there’s zero risk.
“We encourage interested fliers to participate because there is always a chance to win and no cost to bid, but we do tell our users that we cannot guarantee availability on a particular flight (we are affected by things that affect airlines – weather, seasonality, last-minute bookings, etc.).”
Currently, SeatBoost is only partnered with TAP Air Portugal, but they have plans to expand in the future.
“We’ve received an overwhelmingly positive reaction from our customers, and we expect SeatBoost to take off in the coming years,” enthused Oniya.
