New look to Manage My Booking (June 2019)

Here's something new which I'm sure will get a range of viewpoints.

There is a new look to Manage My Booking that is being put under user trial. It doesn't see to go very deep, so the seat map area looks identical, and users have the option to revert to the old version. It's obviously tablet friendly (grrrr) but actually it seems to work quite quickly and cleanly on proper computers. Some screenshots.

wanted to check if I got that new look....

We can't find any bookings for this account.

You can add a booking by entering your booking reference below.

If you have just made or added a booking, this may take a few minutes to appear in your account.

Thanks for sharing this.

I assume this is website rather than app specific?

I think it is just tablet and PC versions, not Android or iOS.

upgrade for 69?!?!?!?

Have the included things like making it clearer what time check-in / bag drop opens (and closes)?

Making it clearer what time check in / bag drop opens at outstations is useful, not everyone can get brilliant (and accurate) answers from Flyertalk.

Actually all those interesting lines of data under the flight line, such as lounge options and check-in times no longer appear visible at all, unless it's buried somewhere else.

I was offered the new MMB on the IOS app in the early hours of this morning (around 02:00hrs CEST), however I had to switch immediately back the the "current" view as I couldn't find where to change the time of my flight and I was in a hurry.

I don't see the link anymore on any booking or platform.

This was available for me yesterday, but it's not showing today.

I saw this yesterday too. Couldn't find a "Change booking" option, which is what I wanted to do, so immediately reverted.

Not sure a prominent top-level menu option to 'Print Itinerary' is though ….

I've seen the new one and don't like it. Current view is simple enough to use.

Indeed! Give me a printed boarding pass over something on a mobile phone.

The other thing I noticed was the use of white text on a dark background, which can be very effective on a screen rich with graphics, but is otherwise harder to read than conventional dark text on a white background.

If that's the new 'house style' to be adopted for everything deeper, then that's not good at all. If it's not, then you're going to see your screen flip back and forth into and out of negative as you move around MMB. Ugh.
