Smile E+ for CO elites is live!

It is still September... Yet E+ is available to you before the day of departure.^

I discovered this, because the E+ seats in my reservation on co.com was no longer grayed out.
You might have to call UA... but you can do it today.

See the full story here.

Did you check UA.com (using ticket #) to see that the seats selected on CO.com stuck? It was possible to "select" them earlier today, but the selections were not being transmitted to UA.

ETA: I just checked my reservations with UA flights (booked on CO.com) and the above is still true. Looks like we'll need to wait a few more hours...

Changing the seat on co.com may not stick... (as many have confirmed).

The resolution is to CALL UA: 1-800-538-2929

To get the UA confirmation code....
  1. get it by calling CO. (You may also be able to retrieve it using the e-ticket number on ua.com. Used to work, but did not work for me a minute ago).
  2. On ua.com you will be able to confirm that you have secured E+.

You might have to wait longer than a few hours.... because who knows if E+ will stick on co.com tomorrow.

I called UA... and I have checked my reservation on ua.com... and E+ is indeed confirmed.

Better call ua today... My wait time was less than a minute... and imagine the wait time might be tomorrow if E+ does not stick on co.com.

United.com still wants to sell me Economy Plus, but a quick call to reservations and got me in E+ on all active bookings.

Too bad Co isn't doing much back for us UA elites. I get to go on an upgrade list 2 hours before a flight even with a B fare and 1k status. And an exit row seat seems beyond the reach of a UA flyer. I keep hearing about how much better Co is - so far - still waiting to discover for myself.

Some UA Elites have reported getting upgrades in advance 1-5 days before flight time, so I wouldn't say CO isn't doing much but more than what UA is doing for CO anyways...
