A few weeks ago United announced they’d get rid of “Expert Mode,” whereby it was possible to see fare class availability for United flights. This was really unpopular among frequent flyers, so a week later they announced they’d be bringing it back within two weeks as an “opt-in” feature.

Well, they’ve brought it back and you can enable “Expert Mode” on this page.

Kudos to United for bringing it back!

    Can the newbs get a tutorial on understanding “expert” mode and the supposed benefits?

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention so that we could “enable” it in our account. Very useful information!

    @Lucky – I’ve enabled “expert mode” now but how do I even find that box that lists available cabins?

    DanR – once you have Expert Mode enabled, just search for a flight and click the “Fare Class” link that’s shown in the screenshot above. That will expand to show you fare class inventory.
