United All-New Of 2 Hours Ago!

Sun Dec 12, 1999 11:26 am

United has launched an all-new website at! It is more up-to-date, classy looking, and ready for Y2K!

I personally don't like it as well as the old, but there is nothing I can do about it! On the old site, you could check fares for nearly any airline in the world, and now it's strictly UA only, although you can still buy tickets from other airlines, but you cannot request a certain airline.

Check it out...and tell me what you think!

I like it much better so far. The old used to be such a pain in the butt to use and find things.

Much Better!

I really like that new site

The older one took some real getting used to and if you wanted to gointo reservations you literally had to click through three different windows to go into reservations finally.

I also thought the font used was WAY TOO SMALL to read and had too much of a clunky confusing look to it.

GREAT Improvement!

I actually like the fact that it checks UAL flights only now since that was the reason I was checking their website and I hated seeing AA and Continentals awful connections out of PVD put on top of the UAL ones

Thanks for telling us about the change!

I just found the Flight Search...where you can check fares for any's under Find A Flight...not Flight Search. It's better to have the "FareFinder" on the Home Page, not three windowns after the Home Page!

Quite an improvement!!!

Much Better. Maybe this will cause Air Canada to build a new website. I don't like theirs.

ARGGHHH! I've been waiting for them to put pics and descriptions of all the "new" service classes (eg: First Suite) for years! They haven't changed them or put any pics! STUPID UAL!

If you scroll down under service classes/international first class, they do mention the First Suite. But you're right, it will be nice when they post in-depth descriptions and pictures.
