    It is about finding seats on a plane with the help of a new US website (ExpertFlyer) that allows you to find seats, upgrades and 'You can even sign up for customized alerts that will notify you if award seats become available on a particular flight"?
    Any ideas???

    It would seem - according to a thread I followed after logging into expertflyer.com - that an award seat is the same as an upgrade seat; in other words, you use your frequent flyer points to get a business class seat rather than economy

    Only at this point do the airlines release the empty (non-purchased) Premium seats to their frequent flyers who use miles to get the award or the upgrade.
