Wrong photo location - DEN/COS (App)

United does it again! They recently updated the iOS app to include the location of the photos on the homepage: "Curious about destinations you’re seeing on our mobile app homepage? In this release, you can now find where each point of interest resides directly on the home screen!"
Well, they got the state right, but considering that Pikes Peak is much closer to Colorado Springs than it is to Denver, they could have credited the location to COS instead (which does have non-stop flights to four of the UA hubs).

At least it's the same state, let alone country.

Yeah, that's somewhat "close enough".

For instance, a picture of the Badaling Great Wall with the heading "Beijing" wouldn't really be too far fetched either, IMO.

Where they have a picture of Macau -- where UA doesn't even fly!

I’m just excited my hometown is pictured, from Garden of the Gods, no less.😄

Sorry ... If UA posted a photo of Disneyland, I would expect the city to be called LAX, not SNA!

Agreed. If a photo of Hollywood is labeled LAX, one should not be up in arms about it and scream BUR...
