Half way through 2011, some of the new United ticket counters will be updated, and we’re thinking they’ll start with some of their bigger airports like Newark, Denver, Chicago, and Houston. There’s no new logo or anything to go along with the ticket counter update, so it’s more about streamlining and coming together as one rather than rebranding.
One of the biggest questions that has surrounded the merger is what exactly will happen to the frequent flier programs. Things will be united—ha!—at some point in 2012, and details will be released later this year. All that means to us is that they’re probably not sure what exactly they’re going to do and are putting off final decisions. However, as long as we get to combine what we’ve earned into to one super account, we'll be satisfied.
