    United Airlines - analysis, information, review


    Company overview

          Airline review: United Airlines 

    United Airlines is based in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Initially it was headquartered in Elk Grove Village, near Chicago, until the end of 2006.

    Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Washington and Los Angeles are the main hubs through which the carrier operates.

    UA serves over 200 destinations and operates about 500 airplanes, making it one of the top carriers in the World in terms of dimensions. UA, close to British Airways, American Airlines, is one of the largest airlines on the planet.

    United operates an astonishing 650 daily flights from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. Every day, about 3.700 flights are operated by the airline through its hubs.

    In order to cope with the competition from the low cost airlines, United has created a subsidized low cost carrier, called Ted. In a funny way, they have chosen the label "Ted - Part Of United", for the low cost carrier.


    Website & online booking services


    United's website is well organized and attractive.

    Flights, hotels, car rentals, vacation packages are all marketed intensively on the website.

    Their online booking engine is particularly good. It allows booking for one way and return tickets, but also for multi city tickets, this service is handy, lacks in the case of most airline sites. You will also find useful that they have included multiple search options, you can search according to the number of stops-overs, preferred airlines, time and other factors.

    Promotional codes offer discounts. These codes have to be entered into the online booking form. And if that's no enough, check their frequent flyer program, "Mileage Plus", which offers you tremendous discounts on flights.

    Overall, we believe their online service providing site is worth 8 stars out of 10, very good site, but if we compare it to the Iberia or the Cathay Pacific sites, for instance, it is slightly behind.
