Talking Cool

Will the new website allow you to request an upgrade as an DM, PM or GM on your award PNR? I am traveling in one week SEA-MSP on an award ticket (to save on the $600 fare) and it would be nice to be able to fly up front...

I wonder if it will fix the award calendar or is it just a different color of lipstick, er, I mean graphics.

Nice enough update, I guess. It certainly looks nice, but won't know about the usability until I've played around with it a bit. Everything one layer down seems to be about the same.

There is a bug with the MQM chart, it seems. As best I can tell, it is using the MillionMiler MQM total, when it should be using the YTD total.

Hmm. The front page is messed up under Safari on a Mac. Seems to work okay with Safari on an iPad though.

IE, Firefox on Windows/Mac seem okay. The mobile version has some lipstick too, more colorful.

Click through the front page links and you are back to the old style pages.

Looks OK - would be nice if the new UI was consistent through the whole site.

First look. Seems to be new paint on an old house. Yawn.

The front page looked great.

Then I click through to check in for one of my flights and I find that the interface is exactly the same as the old site. Hmmm... maybe this will be a gradual change. As long as functionality is restored, it doesn't really matter to me whether the interface is new or not.
