United Airlines and Delta updated for Windows Phone

United Airlines for Windows Phone

It’s late here in San Francisco. Build 2013 starts in a couple of hours and thousands of people from around the globe are here attending. A number of those will be flying United Airlines and Delta when they leave in a few days. For those folks, both apps for Windows Phone have received updates. Let’s see what’s new.


A quick glance at the latest updated for United doesn’t reveal any significant changes. With no change log either we’re inclined to think this was a performance/bug update. If you’ve had problems in the past with this app and they’ve been remedied sound off below. Grab it here for Windows Phone 8 or use the QR code below.

Unlike United, Delta has included what’s new with their latest update. Version will bring two things for users. First off, they’ve updated the login to now accept the password. Always a good thing. Second, several bug fixes mixed in with some performance enhancements. Get the app right here in the Store or use the QR code below.

So no major UI overhaul or functionality additions to either app. But seeing big name apps like these get updates is typically a sign of a somewhat healthy platform. And we'll take that. 

Thanks for the tips Jim M and Aaron N!

So he says that build starts in a couple of hours? Isn't it at 9.00 a.m. PDT so still 8 hours or am i wrong?

Awesome news!  Just in time for my upcoming vacation.  Downloaded the Fly Delta app and it seems to work great so far.

For the United App, the Mileage Balance at the top of the main menu now occasionally updates (it alternates between the current and an outdated balance).  Otherwise, the new feature is the app sometimes crashes when clicking on a reservation... 

No Jetblue app anytime soon... I contacted them a few days ago asking about a possible Win Phone 8 app and a rep's response:

Thank you for contacting JetBlue Airways regarding a Windows Phone app. We appreciate the opportunity to respond.
We don't anticipate adding an App to the Windows 8 phone. We understand this would likely be very convenient for you. We will be sure to share your suggestion. Make sure to check jetblue.com for any updates.
Thank you for choosing JetBlue. We look forward to having you onboard.
