Can’t add miles to flights
The biggest problem I had with this app is actually the same problem I’m having with the actual website, which is that you can’t add your mileageplus information to a reservation. For over a year, I’ve had to call into United to add my Mileageplus information to my flights. When I try to add it on the “Edit traveler information” on the website, I get a message asking that I please enter a valid account number. On the app, there’s just no way to add the number. SO once again, I have to call in. Which is horrible.
I’ve the in flight wifi and entertainment on my flight. It's great. It would be great if United had hotspots at their terminals and checked in passengers could access this to watch movies/tv while they're waiting for their flight. Especially if it's delayed. It Would also be nice if I received updates as part of notifications on my phone for gate changes or flight cancelations. I've almost missed flights because the gate changed and I didn't get that update on my phone. Or I've left my house to go to the airport when I didn't have to because I wasn't updated on a cancelation. Not very cool. The united card should also be added to passport. All the other airlines have this. Why not united??
Worked ok until newest update this week
Now when I ask to see the reservation details it crashes 100% of the time. iPhone 6s and most recent iOS. This renders the app useless and that is particularly disturbing because I had built a solid strategy for using the app while traveling. PLEASE FIX THIS. I NEED THIS APP and it's NOT working. Perhaps the developers will use this as an opportunity to fix another long-term problem. It does not retain reservation details in memory if you close the window. That means when you're in the air and don't have connectivity and for whatever reason you have closed the window, you can't get it. Clearly the app developers do not use the app in real world situations like on an airplane with no wireless.
Best Airline App, but...
I have been using this app for a couple years, including its predecessor under Continental Airlines. Has the most features and easy to use compared to other airline apps. Always works on my iPhone 5s. Lots of additional features and works perfectly with streaming media inflight.
Let's get an iPad version next.
