    Have you tried to print boarding passes from the UA website? Do you always end up with the "destination highlights". Did you even know that there was a way to print them without them?

    Well, there is a link there for printing without the destination highlights but it violates some major website usability guidelines, probably on purpose -- small text compared to the one that they want you to click on, and light blue on slightly darker blue which makes the link almost invisible! See the screenshot!

    It's a bit insulting I think, if not just plain dumb.

    That link has been there for years, even before the merger. :confused:

    Or just use a mobile boarding pass and save the paper/ink.
