  • Flight status notification subscription is a service for MileagePlus members that will notify you every time you travel if your flight is on time, delayed or cancelled as well as when you can check-in online and print your boarding passes.

  • Flight status updates will promptly notify you if your flight is delayed more than 20 minutes or there is another change in the status of your flight. To receive these notifications, there must be an email address associated with your reservation. See how to add your email address.

* United Airlines will do everything practical to ensure we provide the most accurate flight status information at all times. However, situations change quickly and many factors affect our scheduled operations. Please understand that a flight listed as "Delayed" may, depending on the circumstances, depart "On Time." Unless your flight has been listed as "cancelled" we suggest you always check-in for the original scheduled departure time of your flight.
