App can't help airline get their act together
We fly a lot - out of Billings, Montana and since United and Delta are pretty much our only choices, we have a LOT of comparison. I've said more than once, "never again," to flying United. This time I mean it. On this occasion the equivalent Delta itinerary was $100 more and had layovers that were a little longer. In reality, United had 2 flights with mechanical problems which took our layover from 38 minutes to adding an extra day to our trip at 11 pm. Dealing with a hotel, no luggage, food vouchers, etc... Wish I had spent the extra $300. We ended up having our replacement flight cancelled (rearrange another airport ride ... ripple effect on other people) and had our pre-arranged seat assignments changed as we were walking on the plane with the employee saying, "sorry nothing we can do," to being given food vouchers that didn't work because nothing was open (after traveling 24 hours on 3 connections and only 1 flight had food - i.e. STARVING children). In the future, I will fly Delta, spend a little extra money and get what I pay for. United blew it - AGAIN! While I understand these are first world problems, this is not an isolated incident. We spent $1400 per ticket for our itinerary and find United's service abysmal.
Keeps track of everything!
This app far surpasses the expectations I have for an airline app. Not only can you check in and get mobile boarding passes from the app, but it also lets you know if your flights are delayed or on time. We were also able to use it to track our 18 year old daughter's flight and see where she was in her trip. The app let us know when she'd landed, arrived at a gate, or was taxing to the runway, and when she was in the air. The map that lets you see where the plane is at the moment is really cool as well. It's just a neat feature that lets you see where your loved one is and is pretty awesome. The app worked flawlessly for me and never crashed. The push notifications were timely and accurate. I would highly recommend it! I'll certainly be using it again next time anyone we know flies with United!
Just used the in flight wifi and entertainment on my flight for the first time. 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??
