Click on 4,8,15,16,23 and 42 in that order and a movie plays
It seems to be a huge file, because it starts and stops on my computer, but someone with a superfast connection should be able to see it better.

To find the vide you need to click the actually numbers on the rows not the seats

For extra fun, click on all the seats in the aforementioned rows, and then play the "click every damn thing you can" game. After you're done with that, got ot the main Oceanic Air site and fiddle with the announcements box.

23 Airport Loop
Los Angeles, CA 90045
The phone number is a 555, so it's obviously fake. I just sent a test email to the address listed, and it has yet to be bounced back, so it might be the site admin's real address. Anyone who lives in LA know anything about where 23 Airport Loop is? (aside from the fact that it's near the airport, of course)

ETA it just occurred to me that when you click on Charlie’s seat the second time and Claire’s journal comes up, that the person whose face had been scribbled out isn’t Charlie (no cameras on the island), it must be Claire’s baby’s daddy. For some reason this hadn’t occurred to me before and I was trying to interpret some hidden reason as to why Charlie would be scribbled out.
Also, what do people think about using spoiler tags or not to post about the things that we discover?

Robert D. West, of Santa Barbara, California, USA survived a horrific plane crash and is stranded on an island somewhere Northeast of Australia and Southwest of Hawaii. In the event that I am never found, please forward word of my fate to parents, Mr. and Mrs. John West, of Tucson Arizona. Thank you.
If anyone should find this message, please get word to Sandra Rafflethorpe of Palm Avenue in Lewiston, Idaho that her sister, Sally is alive and stranded on an island somewhere in the South Pacific. Please send help soon. Things are bad. And they're getting worse...
This is Bob Jones, of Tulsa Oklahoma and I would like to inform the First National Bank of Enid
that I will be late making my September mortgage payment as I am STRANDED ON A FRIGGIN’
ISLAND IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE! Please have the government send a search team
immediately or don’t all the taxes I pay cover an expense like that?
That form on the front page probably does something if you put in the right numbers for flight 815.
If you are reading this note PLEASE get word to my wife, Christina Smith that her husband,
Jake survived the crash of Oceanic Flight #815 along with 47 others.
Darling, I miss you so much and dream of the day I can see your face again.
The very thought of that day is all that keeps me going here. Please don’t forget me!
There's also this website: http://www.oceanicflight815.com/

I took some notes on Sayid's info and here's what I can see:
Father name: Hassan
Born 17/1/69 Baghdad, IRAQ
Also, that noise for Locke? Christ. It's driving my poor dog crazy. (Me, too, but he keeps jumping up and checking to make sure I'm not dead or something.) I keep trying to skip the one when it comes up, but then it won't give me any more.
Also...what is the weird thing when I get to Jack? It keeps flipping from Oceanic 815 to Oceanic 777 and the seats (or the page?) seem to sort of refresh? Is he an angel or something. I find all this weird since he was originally supposed to die in the first episode.

I think 777 is the type of plane they were in. 815 is the flight number.

I would like to make the sugguestion that none of this realy needs to be spoiler tagged because its not like the writers of the show are actually going to give anything away.

From what I can tell, it is the entry she wrote before getting on the plane. "So writing at the airport is always (something) fun, not. Toilets are really really gross and I have to go every 10 seconds. Stupid baby! I shouldn't say that."
She says she hopes to sleep on the plane (ha!) because she couldn't sleep the previous night because she was nervous.
Then after that it gets harder to read. I think some of the stuff is scratched out? It sounds like she asked to move to 'higher" class and they said they were full. I think the last bit is "...bet he's full of it too." Then there's an arrow to the photo.

I have had a great time playing around on the website. For some reason I can never get Rose's seat to come up.
Vodka for Jack? Russian vodka? His Dad's drinking problem or his own hidden one?
And I thought the show left me scratching my head!

Can anyone tell whose eye that is?
I'm pretty sure it's Jack's eye. I think it's from how the first episode started, with a close-up of his eye as he came to.
And why are Kate and Rose's squares red?
I think it's because the other people's seats light up when you click on the magic numbers. But Kate and Rose's seat light up when you click on other people's seats. That's my theory anyway.
liisakris, I'm not sure why you're having trouble opening up the seats. First you have to click on a seat (any seat) within the rows that correspond with the magic numbers, and then the seats light up. Then I just clicked (or maybe you have to double-click? I can't remember), and you get the things people are talking about. If you click on Shannon and Charlie's seats a second time, you get something different. Not sure if that helps you at all.

Also, this directory has all of the images associated with the people, in case you can't get any to work.
One of the Kate images says she is "Katherine Dodd". Yikes. BTW, thanks for posting the link.

There is also a supposed script page on the reservations page that has a possible description of the monster. (It's the pink sheet)
Manchot beat me to it. Oh well...

ETA: I also find it odd that the phrase "le long des gulfes claires" is repeated so often (3 times), especially when there's a survivor named Claire. Babel translates the phrase to mean "along the clear gulfs."

Hey! I found out what the plane is! It's Kate's toy plane and seems to be a near identical match to the plane diagram it overlaps!
And I got the Oceanic 777 / Oceanic 815 switch too. It also brought up the other website name.

WARNING! If you follow the link I'll give, there's some possible SPOILERS ahead. But everything I'll write will be spoiler-free though, so you can read ahead.
On the first page of http://www.oceanic-air.com, on the bottom right (where the messages are displayed), is a grey bar, that you can drag, and it's an hidden image that partially reveals itself as you drag. (If you don't mind about spoilers, you can see it without having to drag by directly going there.
It's a picture of a page from the script from Exodus part 2 - except that nothing described on it actually happened in the episode; so either it's just a blatant fake to fool spoiler-holics, or the script changed since it's March printing date.
Anyway. Without giving any details, let me just say that there's a rather thorough description of Lostzilla on this image (because a character was seeing it, on screen, in this version of the script), with a handwritten note next to the description going "No! No! No! Not (lostzilla)! NOT YET!"
So, I really wonder if TPTB would give away this information "that easily", ie, barely hidden on the front page of an official site, or if they simply faked it altogether - they did some outright fakes before, like "Actor X is gonna be a regular" and then kill him, so I don't doubt they could do it. But, the description they give of Lostzilla... makes a lot of sense, actually. Now I hope it's true information, because it opens up new possibilities!
