For some reason I’ve completely failed to notice this for months…but I’m definitely excited about it.When I logged into United today to check on an award reservation for tomorrow morning, I saw this message…

Same for another partner award for later this fall that I booked over 6 months ago, nice!

Pretty sweet not having to call United for these anymore.

Good post for awareness. I noticed these back in March for my April 2013 trip. These partner codes are a little tough to find.

This has been around for over a year…

+1 well over a year, only one they don’t show is TG

Kris Ziel July 19, 2013 - 1:33 am

I find it very annoying they don’t have TG reservation numbers. I’ve called in a few times and they said they didn’t have it, but I tweeted @united and they DMd me the Thai confirmation number for one of my 3 TG trips (for the other two I called Thai).

On a side note, I thought the “additional confirmation numbers” was quite obvious.

It is so strange that just this morning I was wondering y my reservation number for an upcoming TG flight is not showing up. Is there any easier way of getting the reservation number without having to spend time on the phone with them.

Not new. It was around last year around X-mas at least.

It’s been around. A welcome feature I wish other airlines would provide. Comes in handy when you need to check-in or select seats on partner airline sites.

My SQ confirm numbers don’t appear either (OZ does appear)

But all was hunky-dory with the airlines for the confirm numbers I was given: trip involves UA, OZ and SQ.

Just don’t know why SQ doesn’t show on UA site.

My reservation with a Singapore flight showed the Singapore confirmation number, same for Asiana and Lufthansa. Thai is the only one I have had issues with.

Bo July 18, 2013 - 8:05 pm

SK confirmation number doesn’t show either.

David July 18, 2013 - 8:32 pm

As noted, old news, but wow – you haven’t canceled your Asiana flight? gl!

Seth July 18, 2013 - 8:41 pm

Doesn’t show my SAS number. Had to call to get it.

Colleen July 18, 2013 - 9:16 pm

Interesting point that you bring up, David. Haven’t seen it directly addressed on the blogs…

No, I haven’t cancelled our Asiana F 747 flight. It just doesn’t make sense to me to cancel, given a different plane on an otherwise safe (good record) and top-rated service airline.

I would, though, cancel anything upcoming on a 787 until I really felt the bugs were completely worked out. Just no interest in being a trailblazer.

David July 18, 2013 - 9:41 pm

Nice feature, but they don’t consistently show all partners, so you still have to usually call.
