United Joins the Mobile Checking & Ticketing Bandwagon

I am loving this new mobile friendly approach from carriers. They are still fighting tooth and nail to stop the use of cellphones on planes but they are embracing the use of mobile ticketing and check in.
The latest to join the fray is United which now lets customers flying within the US, Puerto Rico, & the US Virgin Islands to check it at mobile.united.com starting 24 hours before the flight departs. They have also enabled mobile boarding passes for customers leaving from US Airways hubs in Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Denver International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport along with airports in Dallas-Fort Worth, Las Vegas, New York LaGuardia, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Ore., and Seattle.


Once you check in at mobile.united.com you will receive an email link to access a mobile boarding pass that includes a two-dimensional barcode. The barcode can be scanned at airport security checkpoints and at the gate during boarding. A refresh of the mobile boarding pass will reflect any changes to seat assignments, gate changes and upgrade confirmations.
Now if only the carriers and airports would all join together and make this a standard feature…

  1. You do know that United and US Airways are not the same airline?

  2. US Airways or United Airlines? The title says US Airways but the links go to United.

  3. Sorry guys really bad slip up on my part. It is United not US airways.
    From the press release:
    http://www.tradingmarkets.com/news/stock-alert/uaua_united-airlines-introduces-mobile-check-in-and-boarding-pass-services-852082.html
    I will update accordingly.

  4. Gee and only two and a half years after http://www.berryreview.com/2007/10/16/new-standard-set-for-airplane-check-in-using-your-cellphone/

    I will definitely use next trip as practically all my trips are United out of Dulles. Looks like all my return flights will need paper boarding passes though. :(

  5. Is there a way to maintain the original URL but point it to the replacement article? The article had already gone out RSS and when you replace an article like this the URL already grabbed by RSS readers gets broken.
