To track flights on the United Airlines website, select the Travel Information tab on the home page, and navigate to Flight Status & Information. Enter the date and flight number if known, or the departure and destination airports, in the search box under "Check Flight Status and Gate Information."
If you have entered the flight name, you move directly to the page containing status updates for that flight. Information includes scheduled, estimated and actual departure and arrival dates. If the flight is airborne, the page also displays a map showing the plane's current geographical location. If you have not searched by flight number, you are directed to a page containing a timetable of all flights for your chosen route and date. Select "Check Flight Status" in the column beside the flight you are tracking to view its status.
