United Airlines Gate Board Question

I was recently gifted an old United Airlines manual gate board from MIA, and I'm planning on ordering the inserts with departure times, flight numbers, destinations, and such, but I was wondering how United set theirs up.

The sign is similar to this one:



Only, there are only two rows below the Flight/Departs row, for a total of three. In the middle row, I assume they put the destination, but what did they put in the last one? "Now Boarding", "Confirmed", etc, or did they leave it blank? If the former, and it was a one or two stop flight (such as MIA-LIM-SCL), where did the second city go? Or would the middle insert say something along the lines of "Lima/Santiago"? Besides "Now Boarding" and "Confirmed", what other status messages would they use?

Thanks in advance for the help!

DRO still uses the manual gate board and on the top line it's the flight number and departure time ,the middle line is the destination city and the last line is used for flight status (on time, delayed, canceled). Since there is usually no one at the gate until just before boarded DRO doesn't use the last line very often.

That's the company that made the sign I have, and they're who I'm planning on buying the inserts for, but I was wondering what inserts would be the most accurate and reflective of UA in the late '90s or so (back when they had an MIA hub/focus city).

How much does each insert cost, on average?

Does anyone know what UA would do for multi-stop flights? Put all the cities on one insert or use both rows?
