New Future Flight Status Tool (presently non-operative)

I made a new future flight tool since Nilshomer's tool is no longer available. Thanks to kale73 for United link from this thread.

That might just be the particular flight you're checking. I just some random searches in the future and it's still working. Example: UA 661 LAX-ORD on July 15th.

I've also noticed that ones that have failed for me, example: UA 660 LAX-ORD on July 15th, worked properly after a few minute wait. This is UA's stellar IT infrastructure we are working with...

The website is just glitchy. Sometimes you have to refresh multiple times to get the upgrade info. This was true at the end with the nilshomer tool, too.

The waitlist has never been shown until roughly T-24 once the passenger has checked-n..
The cleared list shows in advance only for CPU-eligible flights.
The cleared list for non-CPU-eligible flights only shows gate cleared passengers.

This has been standard since March 2012.

No upcoming flights, so just picked a random date and random flight.

Worked

As posted upthread, dropdown calendar is nice touch.
