United: A or B? [now with poll!]

United.bomb is giving me a quiz (as a popup window that floats in front of the website, and I don't know how to respond :-)


This shows up as a separate floating window in front of my screen, blocking access to my flight reservation. Should I choose A or B?!?

I thought maybe I would choose "A", because United is always my first choice. Then I thought, maybe "B", because I assume other airlines surely treat their customers better. I'm sure FT can come up with even better rationales for A versus B :-)

Whatever choice I make, the pop-up changes to, "We thank you for your time spent taking this survey. Your response has been recorded." (But later, the pop-up reappears, so I can try again.)

Never gotten this before today.

I was about to 'mod' the title into something a bit more descriptive but upon review ... well ... I'm not sure that's possible.

BUT, that's not to say we can't throw up a poll on this thread!

Agreed! And it seems like every new page I go to on united.com, it pops up again :-) I kind of wish they would give me some real options to choose from. (Firefox, if that makes any difference).

Intriguing! I got the same and upon making my selection, this window came up. I wonder how United will use the data.

I just signed in to the United app for the express purpose of voting on this monumentous poll.

Where is it?

You snooze, you lose.

Edit: Oh, it's on the website. There is indeed love for cell phones.

I'm still getting it. Ugh. Makes shopping for a flight a bit challenging.
