Codeshare check-in notices from United: Now actually useful!

It has been a while since I have flown on a code-share flight ticketed by United Airlines. My recollection of the last trip, however, was that the email I received 24 hours prior to the scheduled departure reminding me to check-in was rather useless. I was quite surprised this week to see one which was actually useful. It included the partner carrier PNR data and flight number, in addition to the reminder to check in with Lufthansa, not United.


Maybe this is old news and I just need to travel more. Either way, I’m happy to see the better communication being shared. Sometimes it is the little things…

  1. I’ve gotten that from them for some time. Of course, it turned out to be useless as LH didn’t allow on-line checkin on the route I was flying.

  2. You really shouldn’t hate on code-shares so much. They absolutely serve a purpose and when well used can offer significant benefits.

  3. “Maybe this is old news and I just need to travel more”

    I think you have most of us beat on that already.
