They should add award booking cost as well.

I think they're a/b testing with it.

I got it on one computer, then I didn't get it on another.

+1 for award booking. That would be the most likely use case for me.

Can you search for anything other than Basic Economy?

Ahh, interesting! I just tried the homepage in Incognito mode and the link is not there. Went back to my normal browser and sure enough, it showed up.

Having found UA flights on Google that couldn’t be found on ua.com, but Google would let you book on ua.com, why would anyone use ua.com except for MP tix? Google site much more user friendly too!

MapSearch- New website feature

Saw "Map Search" on the website this morning. You input your departure airport and it shows you fares to various cities on a map. Kayak had this a while ago. Found it cool for exploring vacation spots.

Defaults to my home airport OGG (Maui). Looks like "Southwest Effect" is providing good r.t. fares to LAS, SFO, SAN.
