New look to select flight page
 
I'm not versed in posting screen shots. But check out the new look.

I'm not about to debate the plusses and minusses that will inevitably erupt here. Change is change, and at the end of the day, the issues are so minute compared to the important issues in the world.

If I am late to the party in reporting this, pardon me!

Must have just launched. I didn't see it this afternoon.

I guess for the people who couldn't figure out to click on the price displayed for a particular flight they added the 'select' button. What's stupid is we now have to hit that select button. You can't click on the price any longer.

I wouldn't have even noticed that change.

I noticed that last night, too. Silly - I think - did people not realize to just click the price before? IIRC, even when the new page was originally launched, I don't think it took me two seconds to figure this out. And now it just makes the row bigger, forcing more 'below the fold'

alao noticed, maybe a week ago, the tile on the home page with the login changed the way it displayed with the semi-logged in state - it invites you to fully log in now.

Ugh, those buttons are *really* annoying - all that clutter makes it difficult to quickly scan prices. May be that's the intention?

Ya it had to have happened sometime between 4 and 10 central.

Another change I noticed about 5 days ago is when you do an award search certain flights will have "Available to you as a premier member and cobranded credit card holder" or something similar near certain flights. I know this has always been true, I just don't remember them explicitly pointing out those flights previously.

I guess people getting confused about how to select a flight directly affects their revenue so they push out a fix/workaround quickly

Something like upgrade award searches not working right or instruments no longer auto-redepositing is something that doesnt affect their revenue so they are left to languish for years.

Maybe it's just me, but this new version seems to take longer to load...

I like it - it's a clearer call to action and doesn't require the user to hover over the book to click. It makes it clear what you need to do.

I like it better than the old version. I think it actually looks pretty clean.

Still miss my favorite one, when UA had the tulip and flights for both the outbound and inbound would show with the price in the middle, sorted by schedule. Bring that back.

The My Trips tile on the home page is screwed up. I have a CLE-IAH-SAT flight tomorrow and the tile shows it as CLE-CLE.

Ditto ...

The rows are taller so fewer results fit on my screen, and I swear there is less contrast between rows.. makes it much harder for me to scan a result page. I do not like the change :td:

minnyfly May 19, 17 5:34 pm

Bummer. One of my favorite parts of the new design was not having to click a button. Much easier to select a tile. This clutters the page. I suppose some people couldn't figure out the previous way, but still...

Same. I miss being able to see both out and inbound flights together.
