What's New in Version 2.1.7
- Stand-by for alternate dates during flight disruptions
- Various bug fixes and continuous improvements
Once I put my reservation number into the app, it sorted everything out for me, in the reservation, it gave me options to save it to my calendar, save it to the app, and I can even change seats whenever I want in the app! Another cool thing, is that 2 or 3 days before your trip begins, you will notice an UBER button to get a ride to the airport, THATS AWESOME! Also right after I checked in to my flight with the Kiosk, it gave me the Boarding passes on my iPhone right away when I checked in! They also have airport maps and directions to get to a certain place, Ex, ORD Gate B9 terminal 1. Compare this sweet app to the AA app, still a LOT OF ERRORS, but United, peace in mind convenience, You guys should add Apple Pay into the app for booking new flights, overall BEST AIRLINE APP EVER!!!!!!
Awkward app on multiple fronts
It does get certain jobs done (check-in, give travel info etc.) — but there is lots of room for improvements.
For instance, each time you want to go back to your reservation information, you have to re-type your confirmation number and last name, even within the same session, which is really awkward.
When I scanned my passport, the app uploads it but then it complained that my name was incorrect — which was not true, but it did not get my middle name. There is no way to correct or add that. You can only cancel the process. So, the whole check-in process is cancelled because of this flaw.
After I had checked in (without passport, which is possible) using the app said the boarding passes will be emailed. But they weren’t. I only got an email notification that my check-in had failed. So, what’s the point? Why not just say that in the app?
Update Pre Boarding Time
I really enjoy the app as it makes my weekly travel as convenient and simple as possible. As a person who travels United at least 2-3 times every week, I have one suggestion. When flights are delayed, it would be very helpful to include an updated pre boarding time in flight status. This is especially helpful when a flight time is adjusted several times. I'm about efficiency, so why not include that as well? It gives passengers a real time update so if they are running late from a connecting flight or whatever they are aware they need to rush or not rush. Maybe they need to grab a bite to eat before. This would be a great addition.
