    Anybody know where I can see a screenshot of the new United.com? I'm hoping it looks like the unitedhub.com website or something A LOT cleaner than the current website. Hopefully Alex is gone too...probably not since "she" was a Continental thing.

    Nope. Pretty much the same with just a few added features.

    There isn't one because it does not yet exist.

    This is a big stretch, but on the Lippincott (the marketing firm that UA/CO worked with to develop the "new" brand) website there is a small image of a laptop showing a new UA branded website.

    Obviously, this could be a very early design that will never see the light of day, but it's the closest thing to a new website I have come across.

    It's an iteration, not a redesign yet. That's fine.

    We all know a redesign is coming. It isn't out yet. It isn't even in preview for the public yet.

    Doesn't Jeff say that there's a new site coming in one of his videos? I swear I heard it in the last month or so. Now if I could quit humming the old Continental safety video music and get on board with Rhapsody in Blue, all those nasty stares would stop.

    Jeff and United say a lot of things. United also announced we'd be getting info on how to apply for Global Entry and get our fee waived in June. It's now almost the end of July. Fortunately (unfortunately :( ) I don't have any international travel planned until SMD4.

    That's actually the old United.com, just after it was updated to reflect the new branding.

    Are they ever going to redo United.com? The current iteration looks like something designed in a web class in 1998, but they had said on the hub that a new design was forthcoming. It appears they lied.

    Yes, they are going to update it. In that they haven't (yet) missed the previously suggested timeframe for the new release I'm not sure how they've "lied" to anyone.

    Touche. Shouldn't have said they lied, but they said it was in the works awhile ago. What was their time frame for the new release?

    And it is.
    Later this year, Q3/4 time frame.

    When it slips into 2014 then it'll be late. :oops:

    It has slipped into the end of October and still no new website. Is it going to be rolled out this year?

    I think they are shooting for first half of 2015 (atleast that's what i've heard from the grape vine).

    This website is taking so long, it better be flawless and amazing when it finally goes live.

    But something tells me it will probably be neither.

    This is United we are talking about here. Even if they hired the brightest people in the world to develop the website, I think it would have issues.

    It might become obsolete the minute it is launched.
    Any stuff developed for 2013 and launched in 2015 is in need of an overhaul.

    Pretty sure they already threw out the website in 2013 hence the delay.

    As per the rumor mill, some of the delay seems to be due to having to restart some of the work.
