Very Good App

I'm Glad To Finally See It. Been Enjoying All The Gizmos That Go With Something Like This. Great Job. Joe G. p.s. - I Will Miss The iCenter App That Worked Quite Well While United Didn't Have One Of Their Own. Thanks!! JG

On UAL.com today a COS-DEN-COS flight was priced at $137 plus taxes. Testing booking via the iPhone app, the same itin was over $500.

It still works for me, and I still use it.

Looks like the CO app for the iPhone is no more. The latest update to the CO app replaces it with a screen that says "download the United app here"

Perhaps...but I clicked "I'll download later" and everything seems to be there. Just did a book flight search, and it seems to be working.

True, but a portent of things to come, no?

I can imagine the backend for the CO app is pretty much the same with UA with just some "tweaks" just on the frontend.

I will keep both for now.

Has anyone had the upgrade wait-list function work on an international flight?
I just did LAX-SYD and that function never worked.

Yes - the main problem with this for me is that I have to log out and back in to see my OnePass account and reservations or MileagePlus account and reservations.

Thanks for the warning, keeping the CO app as is.

United Flight Number (Same flight as above) shows on time (No delay)

This needs to be corrected.
I suspect this is related to the fact that the flight data is coming from 2 separate databases; a CO operated flight will show the correct status on CO's system, but the UA codeshare will not be updated on UA's system.

Example: At the end of June, I got IRROPed by UA going ORD-PHL. The only possibility to get back to the east coast that night was a delayed CO flight going into EWR. When I tried to get the UA agent to rebook me under the UA codeshare flight number, she said the flight had taken off on-time; I showed her the flight status on CO's app, and had to BEG her to call the gate to confirm the flight was still there (which it was).

This isn't going to go away until the merged airline has a unified IT setup.

So is this a way to see where you stand on the waitlist short of the "big board" at the gate?
