You’re among our best customers, and the enclosed MileagePlus handle wrap is a token of our appreciation. Whether your next trip is for business, pleasure or both, it will help to identify your luggage quickly – especially when locating gate-checked green tagged bags on the jet bridge – so you can be on your way faster. Thank you for choosing United. We look forward to seeing you on board again soon.
