The flight I want (an Alaska Airlines flight from EWR to SEA, fwiw) on the day I am travelling is sold out. So I have booked a much less desirable, though refundable ticket on another flight.
I see notification apps that will tell me if a SEAT opens on a flight (to change to a better seat), but how can I get a notification that a ticket (any ticket) is avail on the flight I want?
(I already asked Alaska air, and they do not offer such a feature/service.)
Tried so far:
Skyscanner app on android: Nope. Does not let me even see a sold out flight, so cannot monitor a specif flight on specif day.
Expertflyer Flight Alert: their mobile app is horrible slow, clunky. Not clear if it has hope. Web site: They only do searches by cabin, and the "search for any avail seat" was not enabled option for coach cabin.... AND to set up two searches (one for first class cabin, one for coach) costs $0.99
