    I just received an invite to check out the preview site but, I cant seem to find any changes other then a slightly different calendar. Anyone find anything interesting?

    The calendar was the only thing I saw. I was hoping for the ability to transfer miles... Could use an upgrade option for my upcoming ORD-CDG trip.

    Hmmm n:eek: sooner had I posted the above than I found a problem on the 'upgrade reservation' screen. Now, when trying to upgrade an existing reservation on a wide-open EWR-HKG segment, it doesn't tell me once that no upgrade is available. It tells me this 22 times -- for each segment of the itinerary. :rolleyes:

    Yikes. Did you try going into your reservation on the existing site and trying to do the upgrade there?

    I was having issues with the calendar function. I finally gave up and went back to the original site.

    N:eek: -- Tickets can't generally exceed 16 segments. There are two segments on this itinerary. The message repeats 22 times for each, or 44 times total!

    Maybe they'll still working in changes, but like others, I've only noticed the calendar widget change.

    I was hoping since they said "itinerary services" changes, I was hoping they would enhance the site to get UA seat maps for codeshares instead of having to open the itinerary on UA but guess not at this time.....

    They've posted the UA conf # for a while...at least 3 or 4 months.

    I think I found ONE MAJOR DIFFERENCE!!!!! And I am very happy!

    Did anyone else find the secret "Tulip mode"? It changes all the globes to tulips and puts the illustration ads all over the site! Thanks CO!

    Go to one of the worldwide United website's, and you should see tulip mode there.

    Looking at the flight status page, they have partially re-designed some of that.

    Most notible, the "Where is this aircraft coming from?" link seems to be gone. Hope that is just a oversight.

    Unless it's a firefox issue, I checked the status of 2217 and all I see is this:

    Aircraft: aircraft #970
    Weather conditions: BOS, CLE

    Well I see what's happening, it's just not showing them for Express.

    For a regular flight, i.e. 7:


    Aircraft: Boeing 777-200ER aircraft #10
    Where is this aircraft coming from? Houston, TX (IAH - Intercontinental), Flight 7 Check Status
    Weather conditions: NRT, EWR


    I just sent another "comment" followup stating that on the comment link there.

    I would like all star alliance partners (like ua.com has) not just UA.

    It is likely n:(t possible to display data for most partners. For CO Express it certainly should be.

    CO agents have access to the partner confirmation # so its simply streaming it from the system to the web.
