What is the best way to simply get access to all airline seating information by the date and the number of the flight?
does someone know if there is option to access the open API of the seats map of the site of seat guru?

SeatGuru doesn’t seem to provide an open seat map API. Still, you can contact them directly and discuss a possible solution.
Data scraping won’t work as there are dozens of airplane types that vary from airline to airline.
Meanwhile, we can advise the following APIs from Global Distribution Systems:
SeatMap Display API. A part of the Amadeus Self-service APIs suite, the API retrieves the necessary information pre-booking from the Flight Offer including the flight number and displays an airplane cabin plan for a traveler to choose a seat during the flight booking flow. In addition, the API can display an airplane cabin plan post-booking from an existing Flight Order.
Get Seats API. It’s an API from Sabre. Get Seats retrieves flight seat location within the aircraft, availability, and pricing in New Distribution Capability (NDC) standard format. On the other side, the API is connected to the external seat map providers which are airlines including low-cost carriers, and Airline Tariff Publishing Company database. The obtained data follows the Passenger and Airport Data Interchange Standards.
