United Airlines Takes App to Next Level

United Airlines offers more enhancements to its mobile app that add even more convenience for customers to manage their reservations on-the-go. With the newest version of the United app, customers will be able to change and cancel flights in the app, add their MileagePlus and United Club cards to the Apple Wallet and access other helpful travel tools.


United recently launched a "Track my bags" beta in its app to allow customers to follow their bags throughout all the critical points of their journey. With this new capability, customers will be able to see real-time updates of when the bag has been loaded onto a flight, unloaded from the flight and when it is available at baggage claim.


These updates build on the airline's recent announcement to access boarding passes for 19 other carriers (including Air Canada, Lufthansa etc.) through its mobile app.
