    So are there separate lines for GS, 1k, PremExp or are all UA elites supposed to go here as well?

    The sign in the photo mentions only CO elites/cabins so this might be the check-in area for Continental?

    Perhaps United's is still located where it has been for a while - at the far west side of T-3?

    So they have a separate check-in area for legacy CO operated flights, but no longer show that name anywhere? Seems like a possible opportunity to confuse people. What does the sign for non-elite CO pax look like - does it just say " United Ecnomy" ?
     
  7. I think the Premier Access refers to UA legacy Premiers and the others are listed to help the CO legacy folks.

    I thought they were combining UA and CO check-in. If so, then you would think the check-in area would be the same. I agree that it's a confusing sign.

    I don't think so. Premier Access is not just UA legacy elites

    They still show the CO logo. What is there to be confused about? ;)

    You know, without the gold in the color scheme, it doesn't look that bad. The blue on blue globe in the backdrop looks pretty sharp.

    I just wish they would have updated the livery a bit, even if they're going with the CO style. The gray bottom and gold pin stripe seem to date it a bit.

    Could Hannaman be warming to the SMI/J? Or perhaps just to our new CO overlords. My guess is you still want to see a different CEO.
     
  19. well looks great to me!

    Does anyone know the answer to this burning question?

    Frankly I don't care how it looks. I only care how quickly I can check in and get on the cursed plane!

    I am not sure that was an answer to the question. My next voyage to SFO will only take me to the int'l side so unless I show up early, I won't be checking.

    Why? Most of the kiosks can handle both UA and CO reservations, no? If you can check a bag at the UA side, then there's no need for a CO rep unless there's a problem.
