21/22 March - United.com down?

Haven't been able to access the site for the last 30 mins. Did I miss something? Anybody else having the same problem?

It keeps redirecting me to unitedairlines.co.uk then timing out.

I had the same problem.

Two ways around it:
1) Erase the co.uk and manually write in .com
2) Google "united airlines" and come in the back door via another page on the site (but not the mobile one) baggage, whatever. Once you are in, you can navigate. (Or at least I could.)

there is some sort of issue from canada i see. you can reach united.com using ie, but sign in never completes. firefox on united.com just pukes with a message about a redirect that will never complete, and i see the browser bouncing back and forth from united.ca to united.com

what i find works for me from canada is manually going to pss.united.com, i can sign in no problem that way. united.com doesnt work. united.ca doesnt work.

It's weird; I was able to log in and as I navigate through the site (checking seats and itineraries) I'm not getting that usual spinning plane-hotel-car waiting page, it just goes to whatever page I clicked on.

It's working for me now. I booked 3 separate itins earlier today and didn't have any issues with the site or ticketing.

One thing I've noticed is that the redirect to "pss.united.com" no longer happens and all addresses are at plain "united.com"

Probably related to this thread:

Web site change: pss.united.com -> www.united.com

It was down for > 1 hour for me a few days ago. Really surprising they can't even keep the webpage running. I guess things are still not going very well.
