Holy Crap. I'm not all that thrilled about flying United in the first place, but their 'express' web check-in is horrendous.
Not only is it about 5 pages long, it won't let me upgrade unless I register with them. I don't want to register, which means I'm about to pick up the phone.
Oh, and their flight status notification form is a doozy. "Enter your Pager's e-mail address". Really?
This does not bode well for an already weary traveler.
