What's New In This Version:
Trial Feature: Expanded International Check-In
We’re trialing a new feature to expedite international check-in and save you time. Please use the App Feedback link in the left-hand menu to send your comments.
● Customers can now use the United app to scan their passport for international check-in
● Upon check-in, verify your existing stored passport data (if already in our system) or scan your passport.  
● Your device camera will be accessed, similar to many mobile banking deposit functions, and the scanned passport information will be verified for additional security.   Once the image is validated (and if no other travel documents are required), you will be able to complete your check-in and receive your boarding pass, saving you time at the airport.
● There are no changes to airport checks and travel requirements: customers with international itineraries must carry all required documents (e.g. passports, visas), which must be valid and presented at the airport
 
Squashing more bugs—including a fix for those extra flight status cards. Thanks as always for your great feedback!
