Company name: United Airlines
Toll Free Phone (inside China): 800-810-8282. This toll free number works very smart. It is a Beijing based toll free number. When dialed in Shanghai, it will transfer to its Shanghai office seamlessly.
Direct phone: +86-21-33114567. (The old number, as published in the United.com and almost all the publications of United +86-21-62798009 does not work in Nov 2004).
Location: Second floor of Shanghai Center, or the Ritz Carlton Portman Hotel.
After checking all the airlines, we finally choose United Airlines to fly to U.S. It is interesting that almost all flight booking system used the wizard to check flight information. They ask for a departure date and a return date, the origin and the destination and the system calculate the best route. This is convinient for most passengers, but not for me. China and American are on the two sides of the pacific. The choice to fly across the Pacific is actually very limited. It seems only very few lines connecting the two continent.
